(RACQ) MOTORFEST 2018 – Car Show – Day Trip



On a picture-perfect day with crystal clear winter blue skies and mid 20-degree temperatures, ROAD TRIP’N set out for the day to check out one of the most anticipated Car shows of the year. The weather and RACQ MOTORFEST (click here for further info) did not disappoint.

This is truly a family event that everyone will enjoy.  Kids’ corner was alive with heaps of free activities. A Merry-go-round, face painting, a rock climbing wall, obstacle course and plenty of other excitement were available for all ages to enjoy.

The Coffee Corner was also a perfect place to chill out for a few minutes and grab your choice brew (coffee) while checking out the event “mud map” before venturing into the show.

On display were many veteran, vintage, classic, and collectable cars. American and Australian muscle cars were there in numbers.
