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: No pre-registrations, just bump-in at Mudgeeraba Showgrounds Gate 1 on Mudgeeraba Road or Gate 3 Worongary Rd. Show Car & Show Bike Entry is $25.00 which includes passengers, registration & judging. Please assist by having correct cash for a fast entry.
* Management has the right to refuse entry to all vehicles not considered Show vehicles.
* Management has the right to intercept businesses or vehicles that solicit or engage in business activities or promotions during the event without booking an official Trade Site.

Q: How do I register for the judging?

A: Once you have paid and parked, head over and register your vehicle with Administration next to the main stage. Nominate your category and place the paperwork VISIBLY on your windscreen ready for the judging. (if the judges can’t see the judging sheet, they can’t judge!)

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. If the judges don’t see a paid stamp on your paperwork – they will automatically judge your first category selection. This keeps registrations targeted and eliminates careless ticks on every box and category.
