This Father’s Day, get a taste of Targa Great Barrier Reef and get up close and personal with some of the fastest cars in Queensland.

Councillor Nick Pervan advised that due to the current Covid impacts across the country, the planned Super Stage, as part of Targa Great Barrier Reef, will now proceed in 2022.

“In 2021, Targa, Council, and Innisfail Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to bring a taste of Targa to Innisfail.”

“With about eighty cars in town, car enthusiasts will have the opportunity to get a good look at participating cars with TARGA Cavalcade.”

“The Targa cars will be parked along Rankin Street from 11.15am, before commencing the cavalcade at around 12:50pm. Rankin Street will be closed from 6.00am until 3.00pm to allow for the festivities.” 

Cr Pervan said the cavalcade will travel along Fitzgerald Esplanade, moving down the Corso and finishing on Mourilyan Road, and should take about an hour to complete. The full map of the cavalcade route can be found by visiting the Council’s website or Facebook page.

“As part of TARGA Town, many local cafes will be open for lunch, for both Targa participants and spectators. I hear many will also have special offers, of which spectators can take advantage. The full list of participating cafes can be found on our Facebook page or website.”

“It is a great opportunity to take Dad down to check out the cars and have a special Father’s Day lunch.” 

“Vince Sofia from HDeVolution and Frank Russo from Channel Seven News have teamed up to livestream the cavalcade for residents who are unable to attend. Vince plans to use a drone to give a unique view of the proceedings and interested community members will be able to view this via Facebook.”

“Whilst it is disappointing that the Targa super stage will not be able to proceed in the original format, I am excited that the cavalcade is coming to town in 2021 and, in 2022, we will see a bigger and even better event coming to the region.”
