The Kidney Kar Rally is coming to town.

Forty-two rally cars will roar into Goondiwindi on Sunday afternoon, August 11.

Kidney Health Australia's Kidney Kar Rally's nine-day route will take in the beautiful and rugged NSW and Queensland countryside, stopping along the way at Port Macquarie, Walcha, Uralla, Goondiwindi, Dalby, Miles, Moura, Rockhampton, Monto, Gayndah, Jandowae, Toowoomba and finishing in Armidale.

Locals will get the chance to see the cars up close and communities are urged to get behind the Rally and help fundraising efforts. "Alarmingly, 65 people die with kidney related diseases every day, and currently 1.5M Australians are unaware they have early signs of the disease. So, the rally is a great platform to connect with and educate local communities about kidney disease and the importance of prevention, early detection and support," Mr Forbes said.

They'll be heading off on Monday morning from 7a.m.
