On the October Long Weekend, Kombis from near and far gather at Old Bar to be part of our iconic Kombi events. Alongside VW Transporters and Utes, Kombis of all ages will be displayed over both days, showcasing their individuality and flair.

Kombi Cruise

Saturday of the October Long Weekend is the ‘Kombi Cruise’ day.

Kombis, and VW’s assemble on the Old Bar Air Strip ready to cruise along Old Bar Road to the highway roundabout and back.

The main street of Old Bar is lined with spectators to cheer on the VW’s.

The cruise takes about 45 minutes and is fantastic to be a part of.

“I was in the Kombi Parade in 2016. It was incredible to part of the parade, with so much appreciation from the spectators all the way along Old Bar Road. I can’t wait to do it again this year. Overall it is the best weekend for a Kombi owner all year. I’ve met lifelong friends at this event and it’s been great to share those kombi stories with so many other kombi owners”.

Kombi Display Record

On the Sunday, Kombis and VW’s gather at Old Bar to break the Australian record. Come down and see our record-breaking display of unique and treasured Kombis.

If you’ve got a Kombi, you are welcome to display it on Saturday alongside the Old Bar Classic display.
