About the Event

The inaugural Sydney Harbour Concours d’Elegance took place in March 2019 at Lindesay, a National Trust Property in Darling Point, built in the Italian Gothic Revival style in 1834. Highlights featured the first Bentley ever to run at Le Mans in 1923; the 1933 Mille Miglia winning MG K3 of George Eyston and Count Johnny Lurani, later driven by Tazio Nuvolari; the international debut of 1953 Jaguar XK120 re-interpretation by Justin Hills, of which the Head of Jaguar Design said, “Sir William Lyons would have approved, I am sure”, and the southern hemisphere launch of the 2019 Ferrari Monza SP1. The event was a finalist at the International Historic Motoring Awards in London in October 2019.

In March 2020 the Sydney Harbour Concours d’Elegance moved from Lindesay across the road to the larger Swifts, built in 1875 with its glorious Victorian period lawns and gardens. Highlights amidst this setting of incomparable grandeur included rarities such as the 1913 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost London to Edinburgh Continental; the ex-Dorothy Paget 1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom II Continental Sports Saloon; 1950 Bristol 402; 1954 Muntz Jet; 1964 Ferrari 250GT Berlinetta Lusso; an amazing 1987 Porsche 959; and no less than three important pre-war Lagondas. Swifts was again our home in 2021 when we were a finalist in the Concours Event of the Year category at the Historic Motoring Awards.

The Sydney Harbour Concours was once again a finalist at the 2022 Concours Event of the Year when the event moved to the UNESCO World Heritage site in the heart of contemporary Sydney, Hyde Park Barracks. This extraordinary testament to the living legacy of colonial Australia was again the home for the Southern Hemisphere’s leading concours d’elegance in March 2023.
