Kombis to shine in Yamba


VW Kombi owners are being invited to participate in a Show & Shine parade at this year’s Surfing The Coldstream Festival.
There are few things in life that Kombi owners enjoy more than showing off their treasured van to admiring punters, so this year we’ve summoned these colourful campers to fill the streets of Yamba and Maclean.
There’s a big bundle of bonuses awaiting entrants, kicking off with a discounted breakfast in Yamba at participating cafes, followed by a lunch in Maclean. Plus there’s a Kombi-friendly accommodation package on offer courtesy of the Blue Dolphin Holiday Resort.
Then from 3pm, the official Kombi Konvoy takes vans around some of Yamba’s best beaches and up to the festival site where we have dedicated parking just for Kombi owners to experience the show in comfort. While van owners enjoy the festivities and show off their Kombis, festival-goers can inspect and vote for their favourite. A prize will be awarded for the People’s Choice ‘Best in Show’ Kombi van.
The festival organizing committee have long been on the look out for an alternative to a street parade, which unfortunately has become unfeasible due to the cumulative costs of public liability insurance and road closures, along with the large amount of volunteer people-power required to coordinate. So we’re super excited to be adding this splash of colour and movement to the festival proceedings that extends far beyond the main festival site.
Time to invite your Kombi owner friends from far afield to visit Yamba this October!
