Lake Perkolilli Red Dust Revival
Returns for 2025
The next Lake Perkolilli Red Dust Revival will be conducted from 29 September to 5 October 2025, following an agreement with the Goldfields branch of Variety the Children’s Charity and the Lake Perkolilli Motor Sports Club Inc.
The Red Dust Revival is Australia’s greatest outback historic motor sport event with more than 100 vintage cars and 40 vintage motorbikes, all built before 1940, driving at speed on a claypan in the bush, 45 minutes from Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. There’s nothing else like it in the World.
Variety will manage the event, arrange the construction of the Red Dust Revival facilities on the claypan and coordinate the camping. They will also supervise more than 140 volunteers who make the event possible. Proceeds from the event supports kids who are facing many challenges through sickness, disadvantage or living with disability with a focus on Goldfields families. The Lake Perkolilli Motor Sports Club Inc will manage the historic car and motorcycle entries and assist Variety with planning and the conduct of the track events.
Following feedback, the event has been timed to the school holidays so that more families will be able to attend. Since the last Red Dust Revival in 2022, enquiries have once again been received from all over Australia and overseas. Expressions of Interest forms for cars and bikes are on the Red Dust Revival page.
