Big rigs shine at Alexandra on June 12 as the Victorian town plays host to the annual trucking event

 

It’s one of the coolest truck shows of the year, and we’re not talking about the winter weather.

Once again, Alexandra offers a warm welcome to the road transport industry.

Held regularly on the Sunday over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, the 20th running of the annual Alexandra Truck, Rod and Ute Show was one of the best.
