Proud transport heritage celebrated at Rocklea

From a 1914 Fiat right through to the latest Mack Anthem, it was all on display at the 2023 Heritage Truck Show held at the Rocklea Showgrounds in late May.

A diverse range of Mack product was on display at the show in Rocklea.

Drawing trucks and historic vehicles from as far afield as South Australia, the gathering, organised by the Heritage Truck Association has become a must-attend event on the truck show calendar.

Atkinson and International were two of the many truck brands represented at Rocklea.

This year’s event celebrated 60 years of Mack truck manufacture in Australia with an outstanding turnout of Mack product tracing the evolution of the bulldog breed, from B-Models through to a rare Mack LTL and the iconic Super-Liner from the 1980’s.

Held across the same weekend of the Brisbane Truck Show, many people took advantage of the shuttle bus running between the two events which added to the healthy crowd numbers taking in the showcase of Australian transport history.
