    George Gregan

    by ATXtraveler Written Mar 8, 2008

    George Gregan is an icon in Australian Rugby. He has played in more international test matches than any other in the world, and has led his professional team, the ACT Brumbies to two Super 12 Championships in 2001 and 2004. He is very well respected as a great leader and a fierce competitor. If you are a fan of rugby, then Canberra is an absolutely fantastic venue to watch the sport, as you can really get right down on the field level. I was about 20 meters away from George on this particular event, and if the match was not about to be started, I likely could have got an autograph!

    WHEELS display

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every year, the vehicle enthusiast clubs of Canberra and the surrounding region gather for a major public display of their vehicles – the main purpose is to raise money for local charities (it’s been very successful at that, too). I must add though, that it also provides a great opportunity to catch up with infrequently-seen mates from other clubs! Typically about 700 collectable vehicles are on display, ranging from exotic sportscars to firetrucks and from ancient veteran cars with gleaming brass to, this year, a featured display by the Canberra Bicycle Museum.

    The event is held every March, on the lawns in front of Old Parliament House. There is no charge to come along, look, and enjoy the show. These photos were taken at the 2007 event.

    Main photo: Part of my club’s display, showing some of the range of types and models.
    Second photo: Gleaming brass everywhere: a line of Veteran cars
    Third photo: ACT fire brigades, from the historic collection to (distant) modern
    Fourth photo: A group of sportscars (Austin Healeys) with their owners under the trees
    Fifth photo: Display by the Canberra Bicycle Museum.
