    Going to Australia for the first time from August 28 - September 16 and will be in Sydney, the Gold Coast, Toowoomba and Brisbane. Are there any cool shows/shops to check out.

    Was looking at the Chinderah Run or the Spring Swapmeet in Brisbane. Any tips would be much appreciated.

  3. Car shows, car shows,,,
    It's the people and the food that we enjoyed.
    Start with a load of meat pies, some fresh fish and chips, a trip to a chuck shop.
    And don't take any clothes, the Sally's are your best bet, unless you really want to stand out like a Yank.
    Enjoy your time, we did
     
  4. Regular breakfast cruise in Brisbane on Sunday Sept.4. You can look up Toowoomba Rod & Custom while you're there. Always good cars being built in that place.

    Rat Day in Sydney on Fathers day ( First Sunday in September at Taren Point) I will search for a link.

    Don't be discouraged by the name, it has evolved to a great day over the years, lots of cars debuted there...

    Anyone coming to Oz should check out pinky.com.au, it's probably the best run, cruise and show guide in Australia. Hope you enjoy your stay.
