The Working Horse & Tractor Rally Inc.

Welcome to the web site of the Working Horse And Tractor Rally. The rally has been running since 1991 and has grown to be one of the premier rallies of its type. Originally starting as a one off display of farming as it was in 1891 as part of the Shire of Korumburra Centenary celebrations, its popularity at that first event was enough to prompt a repeat event in 1993. From there the event has moved location twice from two different farms at Korumburra South, the Hopkins property as the first home, the Brooks property the second home and then the final move to its current location in Nyora at Morrison Park on the Sth Gippsland Hwy ( in front of Metro Quarry / TGS ). Up until the move to Nyora in 2004 the rally ran every two years and is now an annual event atracting large numbers of exhibitors and general public.

Regular Features

At our rally we have a wide variety of displays that we run every year. We have a large display of vintage and veteran tractors ( 150+) at all of our rallies. In the tractor compound you will see tractors working many diferent implements as well as the popular Vintage Tractor Pull. A regular addition to the tractor compound is the vintage/veteran earth moving machinery display with bulldozers, graders, rollers and other related items working and forming the earth.

In the horse compound you will see horses and their drivers working the way it was done before the introduction of the tractor. Ploughing, sweeping and stacking hay, running the horse works for the chaff cutter and pulling wagons, carts and sleds.

In the engine compounds you will find a wide variety of stationary engines, from the earliest types made through to the more modern type engines, all driving the types of things that they would have done back in the day like pumps, generators and equipment.

In adition to these three main areas of interest we also have cow milking, hay baling (with stationary presses) blacksmiths forging steel, heritage timber skills displays, a whip cracker and maker, axemen chopping and carving wood and we also have stall holders selling thier wares. And to continue the heritage theme we also get a large turnout of vintage, veteran and classic trucks and cars as well.

There is plenty of catering available on site from both community and commercial vendors across the two days of the rally.

Our focus is on community with most of our proceeds being distributed amongst the many groups that help us to make the rally possible every year. Thankyou to all the hard working people from CFA Loch, CFA LangLang, CFA Koonwarra, CFA Kongwak, Korumburra Rotary Club and Cert First Response.
