Brass Monkey Rally 2018

Come to an area in New Zealand known as having a ‘World of Difference’, during mid-winter within Central Otago and join us at the Brass Monkey Rally.

This is New Zealand’s best known Motorcycle Rally. 1500 – 2000 motorcyclists gather at Oturehua to talk and look at each other’s bikes, party and celebrate motorcycling during the winter, in one of New Zealand’s coldest places.

A large bonfire, music, cap off the event and keep the cold away before rally goers find their tents and climb into their sleeping bags.

Snow and frost are common at the Rally. Bonspiels (curling) are also held on the Idaburn Dam, which are organised by the Oturehua Winter Sports Club.

This organisation also plays an active role in the running of the rally every year.

Contact the Otago Motorcycle club on Phone: (03)4775549, fax: (028)25514828, e-mail us at: [email protected]z.

Cheers, Brass Monkey Rally.

    Jeez, I did this while at University about 25 years ago… I don’t feel that old? 😉

    Cannot make it, in Orlando with work. Next year 🙂
