Tour Classica

Tour Classica is the official kick off to the Motorclassica’s weekend festival of historic motoring, with more than 70 cars and motorcycles travelling in convoy through Melbourne’s picturesque city and surrounds.

In 2018, Tour Classica started at Alexandra Gardens, directly opposite Birrarung Marr and the Rod Laver Arena, on the south bank of the Yarra River. With uninterrupted views of the city skyline and King’s Domain, this was the perfect chance to see these cars and motorcycles for the first time together before heading along their route to their final destination at the Royal Exhibition Building.

Commencing at Boathouse Drive, the Tour then turned left into Alexandra Avenue, across the Yarra River along Olympic Boulevard and landmarks including Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne Olympic Park and AAMI Stadium.  From there they took a left turn into Punt Road and again into Brunton Avenue, past the MCG and into Jolimont Road, followed by a left turn into Wellington Parade.  A right turn up Spring Street sees the Tour pass Treasury Gardens, the Windsor Hotel and Parliament House before turning into Nicholson Street, past Carlton Gardens.  A circuit of the Royal Exhibition Building and the cars finally formed up on Southern Drive via Rathdowne Street in preparation for their final entry.

Participation in Tour Classica forms an important part in the Concours judging, and if two cars or motorcycles find themselves in equal first place in any class, additional points will be awarded to the vehicle that successfully completes the drive.
