Border Bike Fest

29 Oct 2017

The charity event founded by a small group of motor cycle enthusiasts, who wanted to share their passion for motor cycles whilst raising money for Kidney Health Australia, was first held in 2008.

All funds raised are shared to support Lions and local community charities. Beneficiaries of funds raised include Kidney Foundation, Carer Accommodation Centre, Lions Children Cancer Research Centre, Eden Camp for Youth, Wodonga Hospital, Country Hope & various Lions affiliated charities.

The Gateway Island Wodonga is an ideal location to host the event as it is situated between the inland cities of Albury and Wodonga which boast a regional population in excess of 100,000.

The aim of the show is to exhibit a range of motorcycles from the early 1900’s through to modern era, including vintage, veteran, classic and custom bikes and is designed as a community event to raise money for charity. The event also provides an opportunity to socialize and enjoy a casual family day out and view a wide range of motorbikes in a relaxed safe environment.

The 2008 inaugural “Motorbike Show and Shine” proved to be a great success, displaying over 150 motor cycles; it attracted in excess of 1000 attendants and raised $6000 for Kidney Health Australia. The event has run for 8 years and raised over $90,000 for charity as a joint community project of the Lions Club of Wodonga and the Ulysses Club.

The organising committee has contacted the community, clubs and businesses to participate in the event. A range of local businesses have sponsored the event, and many take the opportunity to set up trade displays and stalls to promote their business and products.

The support provided by the Wodonga City Council and Wodonga Lions Club was paramount to the success of the show.

The Motorbike Show and Shine (Border Bike Fest) will be held Sunday, 29 October 2017 and we look forward to seeing you there.
