All roads lead to Gundagai for Sylvia’s Gap run

The convoy traditionally heads down Sheridan Street on the Sunday morning as it makes its way from the Gundagai Showground to Sylvia’s Gap during the June long weekend event.

VINTAGE truck enthusiasts are encouraged to head to Gundagai this weekend as the Australian Road Transport Heritage Centre (ARTHC) gears up to host its annual Sylvia’s Gap road run.

The run has become a popular event for those interested in or who have been a part of Australia’s road transport history.

A three-course dinner, auction and raffles will be held at the Gundagai Showground on Saturday night, after which a recovery breakfast is served at the showground on Sunday morning. The convoy of vehicles will then head out to Sylvia’s Gap via Gundagai’s main street, leaving the showground around 10am. 

Anyone in Sheridan Street on Sunday around this time should enjoy the spectacle of trucks making their way down the street before venturing out to Sylvia’s Gap to take a trip down memory lane. The convoy will then head back to the Gundagai Showground, via Tumut, for a sausage sizzle lunch.

There will be a big presence of vintage cars in Gundagai over the long weekend as enthusiasts from around the district are expected to bring their vehicles to town to be a part of the weekend event.

On Saturday morning the Truck Museum in Jack Moses Avenue is having an Open Day where people are invited to go along and check out the wonderful displays the museum has to offer and stick around for a sausage sizzle lunch. 

People are also welcome to head down to the showground on the Saturday or the Sunday morning before the run to take a look at the many vehicles that will be taking part in the run.

For anyone wanting to drive their own vehicle in the run, you can register and pay your entry fee at the showground on Sunday morning prior to departure.


Also in Gundagai over the long weekend, the Gundagai Visitor Information Centre will be holding a Producers Market in Carberry Park on Saturday from 9am to 2pm.

Head to the park in Sheridan Street and check out the great collection of stalls, with goods ranging from local products, baked goods, home décor, plants and much more.
