Just like classic cars vintage tractors are prized by collectors around the country who take great care in restoring these aged mechanical work-horses to pristine condition.

Alongside the vintage tractors axemen from around the country will compete in a variety of wood-chop events thrilling spectators as they wield razor-sharp axes to chop their way through hard native timbers.
This is a great day out for the family featuring community stalls, arts & craft, local produce and static displays of vintage cars & engines all just 15 minutes from Kyneton in Victoria's Central Goldfields.
