The Coffs Coast environment is unique, with the Great Dividing Range meeting the Pacific Ocean. This magnificent setting, where rainforest drapes the coastal escarpment right down to the golden sands of the unspoiled Coffs coastal beaches, is one of the most spectacular backdrops for any event on the World Championship calendar. Such a spectacular landscape is also home to many unique animals and plants. As a base for the FIA World Rally Championship the Coffs Coast is a showcase for a pristine part of the unique Australian environment.
As event organisers our entire team is working toward conducting Rally Australia in a way that maximises the spirit of competition, enjoyment and spectacle of the rally, with minimal adverse effects on the environment.
In 2013, Rally Australia became the first motor sport event in the world to achieve the top level of accreditation from the FIA Institute’s sustainability programme. The event was awarded with Achievement of Excellence – the best of three levels in the Environmental Certification Framework.
Then in 2014 Rally Australia became the first FIA-regulated event among all motor sport events worldwide to achieve the FIA’s Carbon Neutral Status.
