The Heyfield Vintage Machinery Rally is on again this weekend, promising fun for machinery enthusiasts young and old.

An annual fixture on Heyfield’s events calendar, the Rally is hosted by the Heyfield & District Vintage Machinery Group, and showcases vehicles, machines and tools from years gone by.

Group member Barb Cook described the event as “a walk down memory lane”.

“We have had great support over the years from the public attending and enjoying the rally,” Ms Cook said.

“With the pandemic, we had to cancel one rally but we are back bigger and better.”

Visitors can expect to see many exhibitions over two days, including steam engines; stationary engines; working horses; vintage cars, trucks and motorbikes; vintage tractors and the tractor pull competition; memorabilia displays; blacksmith demonstrations, and plenty more.

Although wet weather is predicted over the two days, Ms Cook insists that it will not put a damper on the weekend.

“If you haven’t attend a rally before, I encourage you and your family to come along and enjoy that walk down memory lane,” Ms Cook said.

The Heyfield Vintage Machinery Rally will be running Saturday and Sunday at the Gordon Street Reserve, with gates open from 9am each day and closing at 3pm.

Entry is $10 for adults, a discounted rate of $5 for adolescents aged 16-18, and free for children under the age of 16.
