Historic Commercial Vehicle Display – Yarra Glen *NEW DATE*
February 19, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm AEDTFree – $10
Sadly the event will be postponed to the new year, now to be held on SUNDAY 19th FEBRUARY 2023 (HCVCA dinner on the 18th). This follows recent flooding in the area and another wet weekend ahead.
Thanks to HCVC (Historic Commercial Vehicle Club of AUST.) and Yarra Glen Racecourse for arranging another date for us.
More time to give our buses and trucks some love over summer!

Join the HCVCA (Historic Commercial Vehicle Club of Australia) and BCSV (Bus and Coach Society of Victoria) for a relaxing day out at Yarra Glen Racecourse on Sunday 19 February enjoying the 41st Historic Commercial Vehicle Display, with the HCVCA also celebrating their golden anniversary this year.
Entry is $10 per person with under 14s free! Free parking on site.
Inspect some of the hundreds of vehicles on display, from vintage trucks, buses and tractors, to steam engines and older cars.
Bus operators who regularly take part include Driver Bus Lines, Moonee Valley Coaches, Dysons, Ventura, Diamond Coaches, John Usher’s Invicta collection, among others.
There will be kids amusements, including face-painting and a jumping castle, and also a Touch A Truck section where kids are able to hop into trucks and have a squizz how they all work.
Enjoy live music all day, rocker cover races, which always draws a huge crowd, trade stalls, and of course delicious food and drink stalls.
HCVCA will also draw the much anticipated Tool Box Raffle at approx 2:30pm.
