Welcome to the only two-day off-road race that sees bikes, buggies and trophy trucks race a reverse grid format through a multi-terrain natural course.

Inspired by the best international courses in the world, the Don River Dash attracts elite professional competitors and delivers more action for spectators in a world-class tourism destination.

Simply, unlike any other race, the Don River Dash is an unmissable event.
Plan to be in Bowen, The Whitsundays, from 6 -8 September 2024.

Friday night is a pivotal moment for our community, as the gates to Race HQ open courtesy of the Burdekin Offroaders and the Don River Dash. This evening serves as a vibrant nexus, uniting local and national sponsors, dedicated competitors, and the thousands who have journeyed to join us. It's a unique opportunity for networking, fostering camaraderie, and connecting with the local community. The event provides a platform for sponsors and spectators alike to witness the dedication and skill of competitors up close, gaining a profound appreciation for the artistry that makes racing seem effortless. With food vendors, music, entertainment, live streaming, interviews, and the chance to meet pro riders and drivers who graciously sign merchandise, Friday night transforms the race into a shared experience.
