The International Rally of Queensland, one of the Sunshine Coast’s biggest annual sports events, will be based at Rydges Oasis Resort in Caloundra for 2011.

The resort will accommodate visiting teams from several countries and Australia, plus the event’s administration headquarters, a media centre and other activities during the 13-15 May rally and the preceding week.

Event Director Errol Bailey said Rydges Oasis Resort would be the hub of an expanded rally presence in Caloundra, details of which would be announced in coming weeks..

“The organisers are delighted to be returning to Rydges after an absence of five years, but we will also be bringing a bigger event than before. While there will be a fresh focus on Caloundra, the rally will continue to be an event for all the Sunshine Coast, with public activities planned for several locations,” Mr Bailey said.

“Rydges will provide an excellent operational and social HQ for this international event. There is room to park vehicles and equipment, quality accommodation that will meet the expectations of our international guests, excellent in-house leisure areas and easy access to a wide range of other facilities in the Caloundra business district.”

Caloundra is at the southern end of the Sunshine Coast, approximately one hour’s drive north of Brisbane International Airport.

It features pristine ocean and estuary beaches and a wide range of shopping, dining and entertainment choices.
