Moto Guzzi Club of Queensland 

"Turning Queenslanders into Guzzisti since 1984"


A little bit about us. We're a friendly if somewhat eccentric group, and we welcome new members. If you have a Moto Guzzi, or are interested in them but haven't taken the plunge yet, this may be the club for you. The club is based in Brisbane but has members across Queensland, and even a few in other states. If you would like to be involved get in touch; email us, post on the forum, or feel free to show up at a meeting or ride.


Each year we host the Ruptured Budgie Rally. It is held on the third weekend of May at "Bikers Island" Mingoola. It is open to all motorcyclists, even those who don't ride a Guzzi! We'd love to see you there and will be happy to sell you a cleansing ale or several. Click Here for all the details on the rally.

24th Ruptured Budgie Rally


19 - 21 May 2017


The third weekend in May (the one after Mothers Day) is the set aside every year for the Ruptured Budgie Rally. So if you havenít already done so you had best mark the calendar and keep it free for a weekend of great riding and some fun and frivolity at the Budgie. For those of you that need to get a leave pass we suggest you do something exceptional for Motherís Day. It should earn you enough brownie points from that someone special. Hence the reason we always hold the rally the weekend after Motherís Day every year.

Please note that this is a motorcycle rally. No cars (except official vehicles) will be allowed through the gate, no exception so please do not ask. Support vehicles are not wanted or appreciated. If you can't carry it on your bike, don't bring it. The rally is fully catered and licensed so no alcohol is to be brought in for two reasons. Firstly is contravenes our liquor license and secondly the bar is how we raise money to donate to various charities. The less you spend at the bar the less the deserving charities get. The food is put on by the local Lions Club and is reasonably priced. Any profits they make are used to benefit the local community.


More details can be found on Our Rally page.
