Travel back in time to Trundle

Parkes Shire


Council is pleased to be partnering with the Trundle P&A Show Society to host the Trundle Back in Time Vintage Rally & Tractor Pull.

Funded by a portion of the $239,651 grant from the NSW Governments Reconnecting Regional NSW – Community Events Program, the Trundle P&A Show Society is hosting this event between Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 March 2023 at the Trundle Showgrounds.

The day will provide a gathering for the community and visitors to socialise and focus on mental wellbeing, showcasing the progression of rural and farming machinery from horse days to the modern era, exploring our rich agricultural history.

Secretary of the Trundle P&A Show Society, Debbie Anderson is thrilled that this year’s theme is Oliver Hart-Parr and Pre-War (1939) Tractors. “It will be fabulous to see these machines in action along with all other makes of tractors that gather for the bi-annual Tractor Pull.”

In continuing to develop the Trundle township as a destination within Central West NSW, the Trundle Tractor Pull is fast becoming known as the premier event of this type in the area.

“These vintage types of tractors became the backbone of many farms in the post war era and the day is a wonderful opportunity to experience the sights, smells and sounds of the past,” added Ms Anderson.

There will be plenty of free activities for the whole family with vintage vehicles, a swap meet, markets, live music, kids’ entertainment, sheaf toss, and bar and BBQ facilities. Troppo Bob will be at the Showgrounds over the weekend to entertain families and children with his comedy magic show and balloon modelling.

The highly anticipated Ute Pull will start at 3.30pm followed by the Sheaf Toss at approximately 4.30pm. Debbie encourages anyone willing to have a go at the Sheaf Toss to enter the competition. “All are welcome to have a go at this traditional country sporting event with great prize money to be won.”

Entertainment will continue into the evening with The Attractors – Andy O and Garry Carson Jones, playing until 10pm. The program continues on Sunday with the vintage car judging and completion of the Tractor Pull.

Council’s Community Events Officer, Carmen Nieves, said “we are pleased to partner with the hardworking community of Trundle to celebrate the traditions and importance of this agricultural community within the Shire.”

“This is a great opportunity to visit such a historically-rich part of the Parkes Shire and experience the sights and tastes of Trundle,” added Ms Nieves.
