More than 200 of Australia’s finest trucks will gather at the Museum of Fire in Penrith, west of Sydney, on Sunday, March 28 for Australia’s Premier Working Truck Show. All funds raised are directed towards saving families from the dangers of fire while preserving the heritage of our community’s bravest.

The unique feature of the annual Working Truck Show is that each truck must be a working truck and not just a showpiece or collectors item. Each truck is entered into one or more of 25 different categories to compete for trophies for the best in each class.

Drivers spend hours cleaning and polishing their prize possession in an attempt at being declared the best truck in their class. The award of a trophy at the Working Truck Show has become an industry icon and prestigious recognition for the owner.

The show runs from
8am until 5pm.
Admission at the gate is $25 for adults, with up to three children under 16 years admitted free with adult entry.
Unfortunately no concession discounts apply as the show is already heavily discounted.

The Country Music Extravaganza has always been a major attraction at the Working Truck Show and this year will be no exception.
Adam Harvey, Catherine Britt, Jayne Denham, The Pigs, Luke Austen and many more will perform live on stage during the day.

For the children, there's
12 of the best 'thrill' rides and other amusements absolutely free. In addition, there are food and drink stalls, free face painting and giveaways, making it
an
ultimate family fun day package while supporting a worthwhile charitable event.

The Museum of Fire, located in the old Penrith Power Station, 1 Museum Drive (off Castlereagh Road) opened as Australia’s only dedicated Fire Safety Education Centre in 1986.

Over the past 22 years, approximately 50 000 visitors per year pass through the Museum which houses one of the finest collections of firefighting memorabilia in the world.

From its humble conception
20 years ago, the Working Truck Show has grown from a gathering of trucking enthusiasts to a major corporate and family event which now takes months of planning and preparation and is recognised as Australia’s Premier Truck Show, attracting in excess of 12 000 visitors.
