Following the cancellation of the 2019 edition, Motorcycling Australia (MA) has confirmed the venues that will host the Australian Four-Day Enduro (A4DE) in 2020 and 2021.

The Dandenong Motorcycle Club will host the next year’s instalment at Erica in Victoria, while the Trail and Enduro Motorcycle Club of WA will host the 2021 edition in Harvey, Western Australia.

The Erica location is set to offer the perfect landscape for the highly-anticipated event on 6-9 May in the local shire of Baw Baw, where the venue will include excellent spectator vantage points, plus easy access from the township.

“Many older Enduro enthusiasts will have fond memories of the 1987 A4DE at Erica with the Parc Ferme on the edge of the state forest that contains epic enduro trails in typical Victorian heavily treed gum forests,” said Dandenong Motorcycle Club’s Frank Gogol.

“With the event scheduled for May, the trail conditions should be prime. With the assistance of DELWP and Parks Victoria, the trails have been approved for use and are vast within the surrounding state forests. Long trail loops planned with the Parc Ferme at the hub of the expansive trail network.”

The A4DE will head to Harvey, which hosted the prestigious event in 2013, in 2021, taking place in the stunning southwest region of Western Australia.

“The Trail and Enduro Motorcycle Club of WA is proud to once again be hosting the A4DE in Western Australia,” said Collin Jennings of the Trail and Enduro Motorcycle Club of WA. “The 2021 event will be based around the township of Harvey approximately 140km south of Perth.

“The event will provide riders and spectators with three full days of completely different type of terrain and will conclude with the traditional final natural terrain moto. Dates and details will be released in the coming months, and preparations for the 2021 A4DE are well underway – we look forward to holding another top-class event in the west.”

This year’s A4DE, which was due to take place at Moruya in New South Wales, was cancelled after lengthy delays in receiving government approvals.
