WA Mack Muster and Truck Show goes down a storm

This year’s WA Mack Muster and Truck Show went down a storm yesterday, with about 330 trucks and 8,500 people coming through the gates of the picturesque Quarry Farm in Whitby, 40 minutes south-east of Perth.  

There was fun for all the family, with a mega sand pit, Lego truck building, food trucks, and awards handed out across over 30 categories, for rigs old and new alike.

Bandana Earthmoving took out Truck of the Show with its 2007 T904 Kenworth, nicknamed “The Hulk”.  

Meanwhile Mack of the Show was won by the Della Bona family, for their fully-restored Mack Titan. 

Organiser Matt Lawrence told Big Rigs that the event was a “fantastic” success and has raised at least $250,000 for the Harry Perkins Institute for Medical Research.  

“The WA Mack Muster and Truck Show is not like any other truck show in Australia,” he said.  

“It’s arguably Australia’s best community truck show.

“People are building and restoring really nice trucks and getting them ready in time for the show.

“We’re starting to get more of a national presence now too, with people coming over from the east coast.”

The event started out as a barbecue and truck meet for a small group of enthusiasts, but has grown massively over the years. 

“We’ve kept it grassroots, it’s still organised by a committee of eight volunteers,” said Lawrence.  

“But now it’s become Perth’s premier truck show, and everyone in the industry is welcome.”
