Your guide to Crawlin’ the Hume 2024

Crawlin' the Hume

Feeling nostalgic for the old days of trucking out on the open road? The organisers of Crawlin’ the Hume 2024 know just what you need.

A parade of vintage trucks from days gone by will retrace the old highway route from the northern Melbourne suburb of Campbellfield all the way up to the border at Albury this weekend, on Saturday, April 6.

There’s plenty of information to keep in mind before attending the event. We’ve put together your handy guide to the event here.

Before hitting the road

Truck registration will begin at 6am until 8.30am at the Ford administration car park on National Boulevard in Campbellfield where you will receive your number and show bag for the event.

Heavy vehicles are permitted to park in the left lane of National Boulevard and the service roads (do not block access) while light vehicles/rigids can use the Ford car park in a sensible manner. There is an entry and exit.

Organisers want to stress the importance of respecting the Ford car park, meaning take your rubbish with you!

Amore Coffee van and Meltdown Toasties will be parked nearby for some much needed brekky before the long haul.

Every driver MUST be gone by 9am at the latest.

While on the road

It is important to note that the Seymour route has changed – DO NOT go past the weigh bridge.

Please use the over dimension route as the rail bridge is closed on the Seymour/Avenal Road. All drivers will receive a flyer at the start with instructions for this.

Don’t follow the bus, they will be going direct to Winton to set up for check in for late entries.

In Winton, if you do not have a number or your receipt (because you haven’t checked in yet) you can only park in the public parking.

Organisers stress that you will not get your truck in the Winton display if you have not entered. Benalla CFA will be checking registrations and are keeping a close eye on those who try to sneak in.

Chiltern also has a change of route as there is an off the grid show at the racecourse and Wenke Road is closed. The organisers encourage you to check your route change flyer in your entry goodies.

Arriving in Albury

When arriving at Albury Racecourse the bar will be open and dinner will be served at 6.30pm with a guest speaker and raffle.

Sunday morning breakfast will be from 7am and don’t forget daylight savings CHANGE YOUR CLOCK!

Presentations and a bit of a talk will be held around 9-9.30am and then the rest of the day is yours!
