37th ALL BRITISH DAY AT ECHUNGA - Sunday February 13th 2022
British vehicles have been used in Australia almost since the birth of the British motor industry. They have helped open up this vast country, and been depended on to help build some of Australia's biggest projects, like the Snowy Hydro Scheme. From the humble push bikes used to deliver the post, to police motorcycles, trucks, tractors, vans, utilities, company cars, and military vehicles. There are many British marques that can lay claim to being to being 'British Working Wheels!'
British Working Wheels will see one of the most varied and interesting displays seen at All British Day with a vast range wonderful British machines.

All British Day is more than celebrating British vehicles. We are also a community focused organisation. This year we will be donating any profits from the event to a very worthwhile cause, and one that is very dear to the hearts of hills residents in particular. These volunteers do an amazing job, and in the recent horrific bushfire season proved themselves to be heros, saving lives, property and livestock against incredible odds. ABD salutes the invaluable CFS.
