Our dedicated tractor team have been

hard at work again and you can expect
another fantastic trek showcasing the
best scenery in NSW (not that we biased
of course). Lunch will be on the hoof

opportunity to experience some really
remote and spectacular landscapes.
Entry forms are required and we would
appreciate the early return of forms
indicating your intentions. Dont forget
the free bus for partners and friends to
enjoy the experience too.
The Oberon Pioneers Classic Car and
Truck Road Run is a longer run this year
to the historic town of Millthorpe. This
will be under the guidance of Alan Laing

participants comfort and care for their
vehicles in mind. The lunch venue for
2016 is at the Railway Hotel. Seating
capacity is limited to 50, so get those
entry forms in early. Pay at point of sale.

The features that have made the Fair such a

Saturday morning street parade, official
street closures will be in force in 2016.

unique aspect of the Fair, could be
bigger than ever!
