The National Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo is where the earthmoving equipment industry gathers every year to exhibit the latest and greatest in machinery, technology and services.

Over the years, members of the industry have demonstrated how much they enjoy the opportunity to network and build relationships through the National Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo.

There are many stories around people and businesses that are always ready to lend a helping hand. The desire of the industry to make a contribution to the community is clearly shown at the annual Diesel Dirt & Turf golf day, where fundraising proceeds are raised for worthy community charities and organisations.


The Diesel Dirt & Turf annual charity golf day is back. After the 2022 golf day was flooded out, the local organisation Mama Lana’s Community Foundation is again the Expo’s chosen charity in 2023.

Mama Lana’s is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to helping the often forgotten homeless and underprivileged community in the greater Penrith region, to advance their wellbeing and prospects for future independence.

Mama Lana’s Community Foundation offers hot meals six nights a week, supplies food and toiletry packs, as well as providing clothing, sleeping bags, swags and blankets to keep the homeless and underprivileged warm during cold Penrith nights. MLCF also work with and assist other local charities and support services and responds to crisis calls from people who need a hand up with food, clothing, furniture, and in some cases, financial issues.

Mama Lana’s founding director Lana Borg said the foundation is thrilled to be chosen as the beneficiary of this year’s event.

“As a wholly not-for-profit charity, we receive no ongoing government funding and rely heavily on the support of private donors. To have this fundraising opportunity to enable our service to continue providing essential services to our local community is just amazing,” she said.

“We have seen an increase in the number of people needing assistance with food and basic necessities, so this fundraising will assist us greatly in continuing to support the homeless and disadvantaged in the Nepean area with meals, pantry items, toiletries and other basic needs.”


The 2023 Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo annual charity golf day is being held on Friday 3 March 2023 at Twin Creeks Golf and Country Club, 2-8 Twin Creeks Drive, Luddenham. This popular event will kick off with a 6.30am breakfast, followed by a putting competition and then on to the main event.

The day features lots of big prizes on the course, however the most popular event is the Pickles auction of fantastic items donated by members of the industry, businesses, associates and others wishing to contribute to the needs of the community.

“Our thanks particularly to our gold sponsor Komatsu, gold media sponsors Earthmovers & Excavators Magazine and Trade Earthmovers, major supporter Pickles and associate sponsors Norm Engineering, Pickles, XCMG, What-If and Record TIME and Earthmoving Equipment Magazine,” he said.
