Aussie Truckin' Pics..


Recommended Posts

Seed, Thank You for the video.. I take it that the shoreline shown is of a stronger rock than the sandstone of the 12 Apostles area we visited west of Melbourne??? Is that 2 lane highway all the way across rather than 4 lane Interstate??

Seed, Thank you for the links. Very interesting reading!! It seems to parallel the building of out Alcan HWY in 1942 only under much LESS harsh conditions, and the exact opposite in terms of the amount of water.

This video give a pretty good snapshot of Urban/Regional Trucking in & around Sydney here in the 80's

Great videos-thx

Ditto to Red Horse.  After my 2 week visit to Australia in 2015 I have become addicted to learning more about your great country. Even though our tour was based around antique trucks we were able to see some of the regular tourist sites. If anybody wants to go "Down Under" after this virus s$it is over PM me and I will give you the travel agent's contact info. If any of you have not seen, or want to go back again, here is the link to my report of the trip on Just Old Trucks:  http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/84264/Down-Under-Trip?Keywords=Down Under Trip
