Goulburn gears up for biggest Convoy for Kids yet

The Goulburn Convoy for Kids is back this weekend – and it’s gearing up to be bigger and better than ever. 

Over 100 trucks are already registered for the event, with registrations open right up until the convoy departs at 10am sharp on Saturday November 11.  

The convoy will meet at the Gateway Service Station in Goulburn, NSW and then proceed uninterrupted down Sydney Road, Lagoon Street and Auburn Street towards Goulburn Showground – culminating in an action-packed family fun day.  

Entry is free for under 18s and the committee have booked triple the number of rides, amusements and entertainment than they have had in previous years.  

Yogi Kendall from Outback Truckers will be there on the day with his beloved truck, Polly Jean (PJ). Yogi, who has become a celebrity in the trucking world as a result of the show, will be happy to have a chat and sign any hats or merch.  

Local artists Jamie Agius and The Corbys will be entertaining you with live music, and there will be a wide variety of food options on offer to satisfy the whole family.  

And of course, it’s all for a good cause – to help children with cancer or severe disabilities.  

Vice President of Goulburn Convoy for Kids, Emily Townsend, said: “Come on down for a great day out and support local children and their families. 

“We do this for the kids, so our carnival day should be about the kids. Kids under 18 enter free and have access to all rides, entertainment and other amusements.  

“We felt this was a good way to give back to the community and make it a fun-filled, affordable day for all.  

“The committee has assisted families in a myriad of ways over the years and have always maintained an attitude for doing the most we can, for those we can.  

“Like any charity, we also face our battles and are continuously looking for new ways to raise funds. More than anything, we want to get the word out there about our services, so that we may help more families in need.”
