Yarra Valley Italian Festival includes Targa Florio Australian Tribute in 2019

The Targa Florio Australian Tribute is once again proud to be one of the main attractions at the “Ciao Yarra Valley Ciao” Italian Festival in Healesville.


The Ciao Yarra Valley Ciao festival is returning to the Yarra Valley to celebrate the region’s rich Italian heritage. The festival will showcase the best Italian food, wine, entertainment and cars in themed events across the Yarra Valley region over two weeks in November.

Incorporating this year’s theme of Eat, Drink, Move, the festival will kick off in Healesville. The Festa di via Verde (Green Street Festival), will also coincide with the iconic Targa Florio Australian Tribute motor car race.

Competitors in the Targa Florio Australian Tribute got an up close and personal taste of the festival in 2018. Drivers were completing one of their many time trials as part of the festival activities. Likewise, locals in the festival watched on as a wonderful array of motor cars drove by.

Festival goers got to witness some rare cars in action. Including the gorgeous 1951 Lancia Aurelia. The elegant 1936 Delage Le Mans and the rare 1948 Tucker Torpedo, the only one of its kind in Australia.

In 2019 the Targa Florio Australian Tribute will continue to play a role in the festival by showcasing some of Italy’s finest motor cars of today and from the last century.
