The EastLink Great Australian Rally of veteran, vintage and classic vehicles will be held at Cruden Farm, Langwarrin, Victoria, on Sunday 20 January 2019 from 10am to 4pm.
For the first time, the EastLink Great Australian Rally will be held at Cruden Farm, the former residence of Dame Elisabeth Murdoch. The event will raise funds for the Peter McCallum Cancer Foundation for Cancer Research.
