Imagine 1001 Volkswagens! Well every bank holiday weekend in August each uneven year (2018, 2020 etc) heralds the arrival of hundreds of VW's from all over Australia.
This is one of the largest Volkswagen Car shows in Australia.
Early on Saturday morning all participants muster at Valla Park. You'll be amazed to see so many Volkswagens all in one place but brother, you ain't seen nothing yet!
There are Volkswagens of every description, age and colour. You'll even see German military vehicles of World War II vintage and manned by crews in genuine Wermacht uniforms!
At 9.30 am the Pacific Highway is briefly closed by the Police as the convoy moves out on its journey to Nambucca Heads. The column of VW's stretches over the full 8 kilometres of highway between Valla Beach and Nambucca Heads.
Check out the Volkswagen Spectacular website for more detail.
Upon reaching Nambucca Heads the Volkswagen convoy makes a slow pass down the main street before circling back into town for the static display. Imagine seeing Volkswagens parked seven abreast and bumper to bumper down some 600 metres of Bowra Street in Nambucca Heads! It's a huge event which draws large crowds of spectators. For the next hour or two they are free to inspect all the vehicles to their heart's content.
When is the deadline date for people to get their booking forms in?
People can still send their booking forms in right up to the weekend but we would really appreciate if they could get them in sooner especially as the catering and bookwork being completed before the event takes the pressure off on the week of the show.
In 2018 we had over 750 VW over the full week of the Volkswagen Spectacular. We relocated to Macksville (sadly no longer at Valla Beach Tourist Park). The relocation was very successful with more room to spread our wings. We were able to raise in excess of $12,000 for our charity groups. We were lucky to welcome the NSW Fire and Rescue to our many volunteers.
The 2020 Volkswagen Spectacular was sadly cancelled due to COVID19 but we had the privilege to been in the finals for the regional tourist awards.
The next Volkswagen Spectacular is in 2021 July 25th to August 2nd, 2021. Don't miss it.
