The 2017 Wheels of Wamboin – Show & Shine – will be held on Saturday 20th May 2017  from 9.00am to 1.00pm. The event will be held at the Wamboin Hall, Bingley Way Wamboin (off Norton Road via Sutton Road).

Last year over 100 cars were on display. The beauty of the Wheels of Wamboin is the huge variety from all marques in a truly country atmosphere. All sorts of automotive machines including old, new and interesting cars, motor bikes, trucks and even tractors are welcome. We will also have the stationary engine display on the day.

If you are interested in displaying your automotive masterpiece please just turn up on the day. Display entry is a gold coin donation and swap tables (provided) are $5 (remember to bring your cash as there is no EFTPOS out in the sticks). As per the past years there is only one trophy for the day “People’s Choice”.

A bonus on the day is the opportunity to pick up some healthy bargains at the monthly home produce markets. There will also be freshly brewed coffee and the local Wamboin RFS will also be running a BBQ.

It will be a great day for a short run out to the country to stretch those legs.
