Outback truckies reunion

In conjunction with the 2013 Outback Festival, the sixth annual 'Truckies Reunion' will be held on 28 and 29 September in Winton, Queensland.

The reunion features a truckie's backing competition, a truck pulling competition open to men’s and ladies’ teams, and a show ’n’ shine open to vintage/heritage and modern day trucks nominating in the Grand Parade Spectacular.

Truckies and members of heritage truck associations are invited to be part of the festivities and visit Winton’s Diamantina Heritage Truck and Machinery Museum. On Sunday 29 September, a Bush Poet’s breakfast will be hosted at the museum to showcase vintage and veteran trucks and machinery. The program includes a tractor pull competition open to all comers, plus photographic and memorabilia exhibitions.

Truck drivers and owners are also invited to enjoy the full festival program, including an appearance by Australia’s Strongest Man, Derek Boyer, who will be attempting to set a new Guinness World Record, by pushing a 120 tonne road train. In 2011 Derek broke a Guinness World Record at the festival by flipping a car 10 times in 3 minutes 54 seconds down Winton’s main street.

The Outback Festival is held every two years in Winton, Queensland, drawing visitors from across the country and overseas.
