March 2018

A NATIONAL Veteran car tour will be based in Deloraine and tour the surrounding districts from Wed 21st to Sun 25th March 2018.

The event is for one and two cylinder cars and motorbikes built before the end of 1918 with most of them built before 1910. Health permitting, the two oldest Fords in Australia will be on show - a 1903 and 1904 model, and possibly an 1898 Renault, as well as a good selection of American and European cars which are rarely seen in Tasmania.

On Friday night of the 23rd, just on dark, a gaslight parade up and down the main street will give the public a chance to see the cars, many with their gas and kerosene lamps lit. During the daytime on the 23rd the cars will be displayed on Westbury Village Green at lunchtime for the public to see the collection.
