We are pleased to announce Tasmania as the location for the 2025 FJ Owners Rally. Our annual rallies bring together enthusiasts from all over, creating a vibrant atmosphere of camaraderie and shared passion for these motorcycles and riding.

With the rally taking place in Tasmania from the 14th to the 16th of February 2025, it's sure to be an unforgettable experience riding Tasmania's West Coast for all the Yamaha FJ1100 and FJ1200 enthusiasts. Of course, the adventure is only starting at the rally, then you set your own plans to explore the rest of beautiful Tasmania.

Tasmania's West Coast is known for its stunning natural beauty and winding roads, making it an ideal setting for the 2025 rally.

The center of the event is Lakeside Lodge in Tullah. Offering accommodation, meals, private function room and stunning views. There are a variety of rooms available, but February is a peak period for the Lakeside Lodge so we urge you to book early. (Full refunds are offered if cancelled 24 hours prior)

The Spirit of Tasmania are offering an event discount and will provide a portal on their booking website for our use. Further details to follow soon.

The traditional Saturday ride will take us to iconic destinations along Tasmania's West Coast including Reece Dam, Zeehan, Strahan, and Queenstown, each offering its own unique charm and attractions. Reece Dam is known for its engineering marvel and scenic surroundings, while Zeehan boasts a rich mining history and fascinating heritage sites. Strahan, nestled on the shores of Macquarie Harbour, is renowned for its picturesque landscapes and outdoor activities. Queenstown, along with the legendary 99 bends, won the Small Town category in this year's Australian Top Tourism Town.

The Sunday ride will accommodate both attendees that are leaving the accommodation on Sunday heading towards Hobart and those staying the extra night at Lakeside Lodge.

The essential information will be posted on the "Australian FJ Owners" Facebook Page, however, an email address has been created to provide for personal enquiries and individuals not on Facebook. Please direct your enquiries to: Australian FJ Owners Rally email (

This sounds amazing.
I'm super interested, but it'll take some doing.
First order of business - can anyone lend me an Fj for the event?

G'day Andy,
It would be great to have our overseas friends at the rally!
If it is a possibility that you would attend the rally if you could arrange a FJ to ride, may I suggest that you reach out on the Australian FJ Owners Facebook page?
I know there are many Australian members on this forum, but a lot of Australian FJ enthusiast are on Facebook only.
