THE Australian National Show and Shine – Euroa proudly claims to be one of the top ‘Show and Shine’ events in the nation, after all, you don’t get to use the term ‘Australian National’ without having earned it.

Together with major sponsor, Shannons Insurance, the show focuses on presenting some of the best examples of cars, bikes and many other ‘things with engines’ to the excited hordes of motoring enthusiasts who flock to the show on the first Sunday of October each year.

There are exhibitions from motoring clubs, both cars and bikes, of their absolute best machines across current, vintage, veteran and classic classes. This year, there will be over 70 prize categories, including not only the usual national and brands but also classifications such as modified, restored, special interest, hot rod, original, club display, race car, truck, ute, trike…the list goes on.

Aside from the cars, bikes and trucks, there will also be steam engines on display as well as a speedway display and exhibitions by Country Fire Authority, Victoria Police and Ambulance Victoria.

For the family, there are skydivers to watch, helicopter rides, free mini-train rides for the kids, face painting, jumping castles and a petting zoo with lots of hands-on, cuddly, furry things.

The Euroa Show and Shine will also once again be taking it to the streets, spreading the display cars around by including the Euroa CBD as well as the picturesque Seven Creeks Park area.

The highlight of the day will be the presentations of the trophies to the winners, at around 2pm.

Gates open at 8am and the event continues until around 3:30pm on Sunday, October 1. Entry is just $5, with $10 for display vehicles, which includes entry for the driver.
