Bulldogs bark again in Kyabram after six-year break

For those faithful to the Bulldog breed, there was only one place to be across the weekend of March 16-17 as over 160 Macks of all models, sizes and shapes descended on the Goulburn Valley town of Kyabram for the 2024 Mack Muster.

Scheduled as a biennial event, the Muster was making a comeback this year having essentially had a six-year hiatus with Covid seeing the cancellation of the 2020 and 2022 events.

Virtually every model from the Mack kennel was represented across the weekend, from the famous B-Model variants and F-Model cabovers through to the R-Models, Value-Liners and the Super-Liner which has been a mainstay of the Mack product line for over 40 years.

Dave Willis, from the organising committee, was thrilled with the turnout of trucks which came from as far afield as Tasmania, Queensland and South Australia.

”It was a little hard to gauge how things were going to pan out with numbers, but we are delighted with the roll up – currently we are looking at about 167 Macks registered, which beats our previous record – it’s a great result.

We have got everything here from the latest 2024 Super-Liner right back to the rare 1923 AC model so there’s 100 years of trucking there. All of these trucks have their own story to tell.”

The event also included a Muster dinner with 165 attendees and presentations from former Mack employees –  Russell Simpson and Dennis Taylor – who travelled  down  from Brisbane.

With the event held in rotation with the White Truck Muster at the same venue, the Mack Muster committee will be looking at making the next get-together in 2026 another great spectacle.
