What's On

Proudly brought to you by the Victorian Hot Rod Association

This unique melbourne event will be even better this year as Friday is a public Holiday. It’s going to be a great opportunity over three massive days of our Australia Day weekend to get up close and personal with hundreds of Australia’s coolest hot rods, customs, street machines and motorcycles in all their gleaming glory, all competing for a huge prize pool of over $50,000 in prizes and trophies.

We have loads of interesting things to see and do for the whole family. We will be celebrating 60 years of legal drag racing in Australia with some good old drag cars, so keep your ears open, its an opportunity to witness heaven on wheels.

They drive what?

Celebrities sharing their favourite machine with you, don’t say anything, but you’ve got to love this one! Mum’s the word, shhh...

Trade Store Alley

Plenty of old and great items and information on offer at Trade Store Alley, stop and have a chat with the traders as you never know what you’ll find out from these guys and gals.


VHRA members will be featuring their cool rides in the outdoor display area.


The “Lets Go Cruisin” team are hosting another great outdoor display with a great mix of Hot Rods, Customs, and Street Machines.


Its the girl’s day, displaying their sweet cruisers in the outdoor display area, featuring many more Hot Rods, Customs and Street Machines.

We haven’t forgotten the kids - we have FREE Face Painting to keep them happy and make sure they download our famous hot rod colouring competition page to be in the running to win some great prizes, for Under 15, Under 10 and Under 5 kids.

Come along and take part in this three-day, family fun filled event.
