2011’s Melbourne International Motor Show was a big hit this year and now after getting permission from my client I am now able to put up a selection of the best photos I took at the Motor Show.
The show was a big improvement as the emphasis on ‘Green’ vehicles seemed to take a step backwards and simply show off today’s cars and what is coming in the future…
While Sunday’s weather may not have been the most ideal for a car show, ET Street’s car show at the Caribbean Market in Victoria drew large crowds for its events size, bringing not only the avid car lover but many of the casual market shoppers in the area as well. Because of this it was interesting to see a very diverse range of people viewing the cars, which is something not often seen in an organized car event.
The event saw a range of vehicles primarily Holden Commodores and Nissan Skyline’s but scattered around the area were a few other cars such as some Ford Falcon’s, Audi’s, Mercedes and even a Holden Barina.
I made a trip with a few friends to visit the Avalon Air Show 2011, in Melbourne on Friday 4th of March. Sadly, upon waking up we all saw the dreaded grey clouds covering the entire sky. The forecast was terrible: rain, black clouds, general unpleasantness but we all manned up and soldiered on and drove the long drive to Western Melbourne to the Air Show…
Upon reflection, coming on the worst day of the week (weather wise) was a fantastic idea, as there was essentially no effort to get to the front of the run way to get a great view of the live air action. When we looked at other peoples photo’s from that weekend we were shocked to see how much more busy it was. If you’re going for the spectacle of the live air show and acrobatics then definitely go on the potentially wettest day of the week. Perhaps if you would have preferred spending your day browsing through the show tents and displays among the large show grounds, it might be more ideal for one of the nicer days. Either way, just remember to bring a jacket because it got so cold.
