Wondering what’s on for families?
Kids will have plenty of rides to choose from in the Family Zone – Giant Slides, Monster Trucks and a huge Ferris Wheel. Open from 10am-9pm everyday, The Family Zone also has loads of stalls and sideshows to check out.
Music lovers will want to pack a picnic blanket to throw out at Toyota Park for the 10 free concerts being held throughout the festival. The Toyota Star Maker Grand Final always draws a huge crowd. This year, it’ll be held on Sunday 20 January and it’s completely free.
Interested in 4WDriving? Last year, we got to drive a real life Tonka Truck at the Toyota 4X4 Drive Track. We can’t wait to check out the toys they’ve got this time around. And rumour has it, the track has been expanded this year with more hills, obstacles, leans and tricks to try.
Don’t miss the Toyota Hat Promotion. These hats have become a collectors item over the years. A $2 charity donation will score you a legendary Toyota Hat to help you look the part.
It’s worth heading down there for a chance to bump into Keith Urban and to snap a selfie in front of the Big Golden Guitar.
There’s plenty of accommodation in and around Tamworth but it’s best to book soon to avoid missing out.

I was blessed with parents who really saw the value in travel. After our first family trip abroad to Thailand, I became obsessed. I was hungry for anything new and different. I yearned to be in the middle of a city on the other side of the world with a suitcase in one hand and google maps in the other, stumbling around trying to figure out where I was going; literally and spiritually.
