Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I have to pre-register my vehicle before the Show, or can I just turn up on the day?

A: There are no pre-registrations for the Show.  All Vehicles must pay at the gate on the day. Entry for Cars & Bikes is $20.00 which includes all passengers, registration and judging. Please assist by having the correct amount of cash for a fast, flowing entry.


Q: How do I register for the judging?

A: Once you have paid entry & parked your vehicle, register your vehicle at the Administration office next to the main stage and nominate one category and then place paperwork visibly on your windscreen ready for judging.

Q: Can I register for more than one judging category?

A: Yes, an additional $10.00 per category is required for every additional category selected. A paid stamp will qualify additional category nominations.
