Plenty to see and do for a morning at a swap near you
Swap Meets in Australia have traditionally been for motor vehicles and associated automotive goods. These are large gatherings of stalls set up for one day, and the bigger swap meets run over a weekend for two days. Below you will see a list of all the swap meets in Greater Melbourne and regional towns for October 2015.

At swap meets you will find cars, including some vintage cars and other vehicles such as motor bikes, caravans and trailers for sale. There are many car parts such as body panels and spare wheels. There is often a huge array of collectables at most swap meets such as junk out of sheds and garages, and interesting old wares to collect.

There is always plenty of food stalls to keep hungry patrons fueled up for the long walk around the events. Its best to attend early, as they are open for public entry usually by 7am and finish up just after lunch time.
There is always a barbeque breakfast at a swap, with funds donated to charities. Image by the writer.
