Three Major Nominations

Selected as a national finalist for ‘Best New Event’, ‘Best Community Event’ and ‘Best Achievement in Marketing, Communication or Sponsorship’, a rigorous review process pitched the Bowral Classic against hundreds of other entries from across Australia.

The panel determined the Bowral Classic to be a stand-out and hot contender for this year’s gala awards awards ceremony to be held on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast on September 13.

Co-chair of the awards judging panel, Sandy Hollway AO, said nomination put a spotlight on the industry suppliers delivering incredible technical, design, marketing and other achievements.
“The finalists in this year’s Australian Event Awards demonstrate the strength and variety of Australia’s events industry,” he said.

James Yaffa, head of Bicycling Australia’s parent company Yaffa Media, was thrilled with the nominations and said the recognition is not possible without the fantastic support from external stakeholders, partners and the amazing riders who took part in the inaugural Bowral Classic.

Bigger & Better For 2017

More than 3,000 people enjoyed last year’s Bowral Classic – a one-day Gran Fondo Cyclo-Sportif held in the pristine Southern Highlands of New South Wales. Lauded a huge success, participants helped raise more than $110,000 for charity. This year’s Bowral Classic, on October 22, looks set to be an even greater success.
Yaffa Media have since announced two sister events, the Clare Classic for South Australia on April 8, 2018, and the Noosa Classic in sunny Queensland on August 26, 2018.
