About Us

First run in 1991, the Bright Rod Run has become one of the premier motoring events in Australia.  In 2013 the Bright Rod & Kustom Club began running the event to include all vehicle whose model began manufacture prior to or during 1977.

The weekend focuses on car enthusiasts from across Australia, attracting the owners and lovers of many and varied automobiles along with their families. It is action packed with something for everyone. There is a Show N Shine, Street Cruising, a Poker Run, Live music every day, trade stalls, and markets on the Sunday.
