Quambatook

Three hundred kilometres north-west of Melbourne, the rural town of Quambatook lies in the heart of Victoria's wheat belt.

Throughout the land, however, Quambatook has been recognised for the last quarter of a century as the tractor-pulling capital of the nation. Although tractor pulling made its Australian debut in nearby Elmore, Quambatook has kept its foot on the pedal since Apex organised the town's first competition in 1976.

Within a couple of years Apex handed responsibility over to the Quambatook Tractor Pulling Association which has built the annual Easter event into one of the showcases of rural Australia. And down through the years some of the standout machines such as the Quamby Quaker and the Aussie Battler have become part of the nation's tractor and rural folklore.

Nearby Lalbert Lake is dependent on high flows from the Avoca River to fill its 500ha basin, but when the water is up the carp and redfin are on the bite.

Quambatook Tractor Pullers - Australian Tractor Pull Championships


Come to the Australian Tractor Pull Championships held at Quambatook annually Easter Saturday. High octane intensity explodes into Quambatook as the power hungry modified tractors and trucks blast their way down the track on a mission towards the ultimate 'Full Pull'.

Sight, sound, action, diesel, alcohol fuels and the giddy expectation of an anxious crowd - this spectacle feeds an addiction. As competitors take off the rev limiters, scream the RPM's and push their equipment to the very edge it will not take long for the event to gain traction. The program includes highly modified tractors and trucks in several classes including the Junior Mower class which caters for kids to become involved in pulling.

The Quambatook Tractor Pull is way more than just power alone. It is creativity, team spirit and having a good time. It is entertainment for all the family, on and off the track. Full catering on site, raised viewing banks, bring a rug or 'decky'.

Starts at 1:30pm and continues under lights until 10:00pm.

Other features are joy flights, country market and carnival rides.
