This year the focus will be on classic vehicles made between January 1, 1956 and December 31, 1978.
NSW: Northern Rivers Drags
Here’s one for the revheads. Watch as daredevil drivers put the pedal to the metal in this Australian National Drag Racing Association-endorsed event. Wanna race? That can be arranged. Otherwise, take in the full spectacle of this high-octane event at Casino.
NSW: Deni Ute Muster
One of the most iconic car events in Australia, this two-day event gets bigger and brasher every year. Deniliquin is flooded with hotted-up utes and thousands of campers there to don blue singlets and sink some beers, check out each other’s rides, drool over the vehicles at the show ‘n’shine and lap up all the action at the bull ride spectacular, trade stalls, and whip cracking. The muster is so cool it even has its own Guinness World Record.
VIC: Swan Hill Show
