Conway revvin’ it up at vintage van show
VINTAGE vehicle lovers had better strap themselves in, because a new special event is coming to the Whitsundays.
Following on from their popular annual Cars at Conway, Conway Beach Tourist Park is holding a brand new event – Vintage and Retro Vans.
The vintage van exhibition is set to feature more than 20 vehicles from across Queensland. Visitors will vote on what they think is the best van and prizes will be awarded.
“It’s a bit of a first for up here. The whole retro and van thing is quite a big thing down south,” Conway Beach Tourist Park owner Debbie Brown said.
“It will be similar to the car show we have in November.”
Ms Brown said they were still inviting any van owners or vintage and retro car owners to enter their vehicles in the exhibition.
For more information contact the park on 4947 3147 or visit the Facebook page Conway Beach Tourist Park, Whitsundays.
“We hope it grows into a really big event for north Queensland,” Ms Brown said.
There will be plenty to do on the day with food vendors and plenty of activities for the kids including train rides and pool facilities.
Ms Brown said they already had vans coming from as far as Rockhampton and the Sunshine Coast but they would also like a strong contingent of local owners.
“For those people looking to do a few repairs and do them up then this will be a really inspiring show for those people,” she said.
“It will be a family day and a really fun weekend all round.”
