The National Diesel Dirt &Turf Expo is not only Australia’s largest earthmoving equipment Expo; it’s also the place where exhibitors and people associated with the industry can network and share experiences and information.

It’s an industry that’s well known for people who are willing to help out industry colleagues, and nowhere is this better demonstrated than the tradition set by the Expo to raise money for worthy charities and causes.

Giving Back To The Community

 This year there is no better cause than helping the families of fire fighters left without a dad after the tragic and devastating East Coast bushfires.

The venue for the 2020 Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo annual charity golf day was again the championship Twin Creeks Golf and Country Club at Luddenham. This popular event kicked off with a 6.30am breakfast, followed by a putting competition and then on to the main event.

The golf day lunch was attended by Blake Kingdon, deputy captain of the Horsley Park Rural Fire Service and other RFS representatives, along with Jess Hayes and Mel O’Dwyer. Also recognised was Megan McPaul who was unable to attend.

“As always, Hugh Rainger of Pickles Auctions did an amazing job with the auction bidding,” said Expo manager Marti Zivkovich.

“Our thanks to these amazing organisations and individuals who donated auction and raffle prizes and hole sponsorships: A&I Auto Electrics, Alemlube, Black Hawk, Brian Fletcher of Panthers Penrith, Denise Plenderleith, Digga Machinery Attachments, Drummond Golf, Finlease, Glemma Hair, Hitachi, Holiday Inn St Marys, International Greenkeepers, ITR Pacific, JCB CEA, Kanga, Komatsu, Land HQ, and LiuGong.

And to Mark Gilson, Mayne Media Group, Mercure Penrith, Michael Woodcroft, MG Logistics, Newcastle Golf Club, New Holland, Pickles Auctions, Position Partners, Quest Penrith, Rodney Clarke, Semco, Sydney Dragway, Toro, Toyota Material Handling and Twin Creeks Golf & Country Club and Wirtgen.

“The golf day is a great way to build networking with others in the industry and enjoy a great day out, while raising money for charity,” Marti added.

Bigger And Better

This national expo continues to attract more than 200 exhibitors and large numbers of visitors associated with the earthmoving industry, their colleagues, associates and friends.

The dates for the 2021 National Diesel Dirt &Turf Expo are Friday 9th April to Sunday 11th April at the Sydney Dragway, Ferrers Road, Eastern Creek, New South Wales.

Peter Beaumont, general manager of the Sydney Dragway, addressed the guests to give them a hint of the site improvements that were being carried out between now and April 2021, which would make the Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo even bigger and better than before.

This outstanding venue is conveniently located in the centre of Western Sydney. Entry to the Expo is free and there’s plenty of free parking and lots of accommodation.
