In its 30th year, the Taree and District Vintage and Classic Motorcycle Club rally attracted enthusiasts from across the State and beyond to the Great Lakes, with about 160 vintage bikes being entered into the event.
Of those, the oldest was an impressive 1916 Triumph Model H, while a variety of other classic machines were also on display, with the bikes being separated into divisions based on their respective eras.
Saturday, March 2 marked the main day of the rally, with the entourage setting off from the Happy Hallidays Caravan Park at Black Head in the morning and making their first stop at Tuncurry's John Wright Park, where the public was given a chance to admire the beautiful machines.
From here, the convoy headed south through Forster and Bungwahl, before crossing the highway for lunch at Wootton.
Well-fed and satisfied, the riders then made their way back to the Happy Hallidays Caravan Park for the presentation dinner, where prizes were awarded for the most popular bikes in each division.
The club's publicity officer, Frank Elliott, said the logic behind the day was simple.
"It's just a good get together," he said.
“Most of the clubs I know of in New South Wales have a get together for their riders. It’s a great opportunity to ride among riders of a like mind.”
