Highway 31 Heritage Run

Please join the National Trust in conjunction with Classic Yass on a leisurely tour of the former Hume Highway, driving from Retford Park, Bowral to Cooma Cottage, Yass.

We will meet at historic Retford Park in Bowral for morning tea between 9 and 10amĀ and travel to Yass using as much as possible of the Old Hume Highway 31 as we can, depending on which sections of the road have convenient and defined entry and exit points. Then on to Harper’s Mansion at Berrima for a tour and then to Riversdale in Goulburn for a tour and lunch. From here we will travel via Gunning to Yass to join with the Classic Yass event at Banjo Paterson Park. On Saturday evening you may join us for a Gala Dinner and for those night owls who love to dance the night away there will be a Twist and Shout 60s Dance Party at a separate venue. The next morning we’ll have breakfast at the Historic Yass Railway Museum from 8am and then the day is yours to enjoy at Cooma Cottage from 10am where you can join the 300 odd cars from the Classic Yass for a Classic Motor show, a Vintage Tractor Pull, Antique Farm Machinery and Draft Horse displays, market stalls, music, food and drinks.

All participating vehicles, cars, motorcyles and light commercial vehicles must be registered for use on public roads (historic registration is valid) and they must be of a model manufactured before 1980.
