Brass Monkey Rally 2018

The Otago Motorcycle Club’s Brass Monkey Rally
Saturday, 2 June 2018 – Sunday, 3 June 2018
Oturehua, Central Otago, New Zealand

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 year is the 38th year that the event is being held.

This is New Zealand’s best known Motorcycle Rally. 1000 – 2000 motorcyclists gather at Oturehua to talk and look at each other’s bikes, tell stories, party and celebrate motorcycling during the winter, in one of New Zealand’s coldest places.

A bike show, prize giving for various categories, a large bonfire and 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 – so dress accordingly and ensure your motorcycle is prepared for winter riding conditions. Bonspiels (curling) are also held on the Idaburn Dam which is organised by the Oturehua Winter Sports Club. This organisation plays an active role in the running of the rally every year.
