The Geelong Showgrounds in East Geelong will once again host the Geelong Classic Truck and Machinery Show, a great event that has gone from strength to strength in recent years. This year the event spans Saturday the 9th and Sunday the 10th of January 2016.


The show attracts a great crowd who flock to see some incredible items not often seen. As well as static displays in the Vintage Machinery shed there are dozens of amazing machines and contraptions that have come to Geelong for this event from all over the country. Expect to see lots of farm equipment including tractors of all sizes, ploughs, balers and plenty of steam driven equipment. There will be a wool scouring machine,

This event is not only a favourite for the enthusiasts, kids especially love it with so many interesting things to see and explore from the clunking and clanking, the steam and the chance to see trucks, tractors and other interesting machinery up close and working.

Kids and adults alike are also fascinated by the displays in the Hall of Manufacturers. Here some very talented people have their Lego and Meccano creations on display. Many of the items have taken months if not longer to build and perfect.

The tractor pull is one of the show’s highlights here visitors can see the might power of these mighty machines. The tractor pull begin at 10:00 AM on both Saturday and Sunday and there will be around 70 different tractors taking part. While we are talking about mighty machines, the Big Rigs display is also a must see. Last year over 130 vintage trucks and busses were on display and this year word is the display will be even bigger and better.

The show also features a classic car and motorcycle display. Here visitors will see over 100 vehicles representing the classic eras of motoring. There will be vintage, some great curves from the forties and fifties and incredible muscle cars from the sixties and seventies.
