Big trucks roll into Echuca

By Ivy Jensen

TRUCKS of all shapes and sizes will be on show this weekend at Echuca’s Rotary Park as the American Iron and Australian Road Transport History Display rolls into town.

Hundreds of trucks, some almost 100 years old, will be rolling in from all around Australia — Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, Victoria, NSW and even catching a ride across Bass Strait on the Spirit of Tasmania.

American Iron and Australian Road Transport History Display showcases all makes and models of trucks 25 years and older.

As well as the big rigs, the weekend will feature live music, catering, miniature train rides, tractor pull demonstrations, a jumping castle and face painting.

There is also a Thomas the Tank Engine display.

Club merchandise will be available to buy.

The event, open between 9am and 4pm on Saturday and Sunday, September 7-8, is a fantastic event for the whole family to enjoy.

Day admission is $10 for adults, or $15 for a weekend pass, but is free for children or anyone who rolls in with a heritage truck.
