Con­way revvin’ it up at vin­tage van show

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

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.”
