Wheels at Wanaka showcased a ton of transport over the Easter weekend attracting enthusiasts from all over New Zealand.

Held every second year, the biennial event shows every alternative year to Warbirds Over Wanaka International Airshow hosting a three day celebration over the long weekend from Friday through to Sunday.

This year attracted a bumper crowd relishing in the delights of transport throughout the decades, from large earthmoving displays through to European and exotic cars, tractors, vintage cars and motorbikes.

Volunteers worked tirelessly over the weekend ensuring the wheels turned perfectly across the entire event with organisers thrilled with the way the weekend unfolded.

The magnitude of the show requires planning, organisation and execution, all of which was handled precisely adding to an eclectic vibe across the long weekend.

A tractor tour of Highlands Motorsport Park  helped out the Heart Kids New Zealand charity as partners of the Wheels at Wanaka event.

The Tractor Trek travelled the length of the country from New Plymouth leaving back in March making its way to Wanaka for the show.

Wheels of every size paraded as on-lookers soaked up the atmosphere and the rare opportunity to view such a collection.

A highlight for spectators was the Terra Cat Earthmoving Extravaganza held each day proving size does matter.

Over 20,000 machines took part in the thrill of the long weekend  with enthusiasts, organisers and volunteers  now looking forward to a break before planning the 2023 exhibition.
