What could get more Australian than helping out our farmers?

This Friday, over 150 trucks will depart Darlington Point and make their way through central west NSW and up through to Cunnamulla, in Queensland, for the 13th Burrumbuttock Hay Runners trip.

Burrumbuttock Hay Runners founder Brendan Farrell made the announcement of the 2018 hay run during last year’s Henty Machinery Field Days.

Trucks will depart at 6am on the Friday with a lunch stop at Cobar before venturing to Bourke and on to Cunnamulla mid-afternoon with on-farm drop-offs the following day.

Are you, or someone you know, participating in the hay run this Australia Day? We'd love to hear from you and share your amazing story!
