Kombis & Classics

On the October Long Weekend, Kombis and Classics from near and far gather at Old Bar to be part of our iconic events.


Kombi Cruise

The Kombi cruise is held on the Saturday afternoon of the Festival.
Kombis, and VW’s assemble on the Old Bar Air Strip ready to cruise along Old Bar Road to the highway roundabout and back. A crowd favourite every year, 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.


Kombi Record Display

On 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 Classics.


Old Bar Classic

Our display of classic cars, beetles and bikesis held on the Saturday of the Festival.

Escape the busy crowds and explore the growing range of classics on display – from veteran to modern street machines and motorcycles. You might just find some inspiration for that project waiting in the back shed
