The wonderful venue of Euroa’s pristine Seven Creeks Park will once again be the site of the Australian National Show and Shine, on Sunday, October 6.

Acknowledged as one of the top Show and Shine in Australia, the local event is now also recognised as one of the best value-for-money family entertainment events for motoring enthusiasts.

Event director, Ross Holt said that the committee had concentrated on obtaining new major attractions for the show this year, whilst keeping the admission price as low as possible.

“The show this year will feature a great range of captivating vehicles, ranging in age from 1902, with a rare AMC Rambler from NSW – the oldest model car ever displayed at our event – right up to the incredible 2019 all-electric Jaguar I-Pace from Darryl Twitt Motors.”

This year’s theme will be the 1970s, inspired by motorcyclists who have acknowledged the 50th anniversary of the iconic ‘Easy Riders’ movie, which will be screened at the Euroa Community Cinema on the Saturday night prior to the show. There will also be a competition, with prizes for the best-dressed 1970s costumes, and more.

As expected, bikes will feature 1970s ‘Choppers’ but will also continue the dirt bike theme. For the cars, look out for a convention of Holden Sandman panel vans and some spectacular 1970s vehicles, including a Torana A9X, valued in excess of $300,000.

The popular speedway stand has expanded this year to include race cars, with the addition of some very unusual special interest cars, such as the ‘LapreCorn’, a 50-year project for a Maserati replica, plus some interesting rally cars, recently returned especially for the event.

There are over 70 trophies on offer across a variety of classes, the most coveted of which will be the GMCU ‘Best in Show’ and ‘Best Motorcycle in Show.’ Mothers Polishes will also present their top awards, with presentations taking place at centre stage at 1:30pm.

Once again, the focus is to ensure the event is established as a family-friendly environment by including new and innovative attractions for everybody. Attractions such as the Euroa mini railway, horse and carriage rides, two jumping castles, and a petting zoo ensure that nobody of any age gets bored on the day.

This year, fans of the Show and Shine can remember the day by taking home some official merchandise, the first time in several years merchandise from the event has been offered for sale. There will also be food and drink stalls, trade stalls and entertainment, including live bands.

Entry prices for the show and shine are $5 for adults and kids under 16 are free. Show cars entry is $10 including the driver, and motorcycles entry is $5 including the rider.

The Euroa Show and Shine will take place at Seven Creeks Park on Sunday, October 8, with gates for the event opening at 8am. Last year, over 800 cars and in excess of 450 bikes were on show! For more information, visit www.australiannationalshowandshine.com.au
