CARIBOU PUBLICATIONS: DIVERSE, EXPERIENCED, RESPECTED

 

Caribou Publications is a pioneering event management, media services and publishing company, founded by John Craven in 1980. The Geelong-based Caribou has been Australia’s leading cycling promoter for the past 30 years, organising iconic races like the Herald Sun Tour for 16 years, Melbourne to Warrnambool Classic (21), Australian road championships in Portarlington and Ballarat (12) and the Victorian road titles (9).

 

Caribou also founded and promoted the Tours of Tasmania, Murray River, Gippsland, Queensland and Geelong, and created the hugely-successful Tattersall’s-Scody Cup series. The company inaugurated the cross-border Tour of the Great South Coast in 2012 and has been heavily engaged in the organisation and promotion of the historic Tasmanian Christmas Sports Carnivals since 2013.

 

On the athletics front, Caribou created and organised the trail-blazing Great Otway Classic for 16 years – from 1980 onwards – and was instrumental in the establishment and promotion of the fabulous Great Ocean Road International Marathon from 2005-13.

 

The company, which employs up to 150 full and part-time staff and crew on its events, also resurrected and organised the Yarra River Three-Mile Swim in 1980s.
