Anyone with a passion for big horsepower, high octane vehicles can get their fix at Tooradin.

 

Tooradin is a little village on the South Gippsland Highway, just over 70km south east of Melbourne.

It’s also the home of the annual Tooradin Tractor Pull and Truck Show, the first trucking event of the year on the Australian calendar.

Each year the show attracts big crowds and lots of machinery, as well as giving the public great value for money.

Anyone with a passion for just about any type of big horsepower, high octane vehicles can get their fix at Tooradin.

Peter Schlenk headed to this year's event to capture the trucks on show.
