All British Motorcycle Rally at Maldon 2019

The BSA Motorcycles Owners association operates the All British Motorcycle Rally each year and as part of the rally rides from Newstead to Maldon for the day.

This year over 1000 people attended and a sea of British motorcycles, mostly historical and vintage, filled Main Street at Maldon.

Today people stopped to view the massive display of bikes. Riders stopped in at local cafes and the bakery for lunch. Visitors not expecting the rally looked bemused or amazed at how many motorcycles filled the street.

The BSA Motorcycle Owners Association has run the All British Rally annually since 1977. This years event is to be held again in Newstead, Victoria, at the Old Newstead Racecourse. Owners and aficionados of British Motorcycles, their families and friends are all welcome at the All British Rally.

Here are some photos from the event today. Thanks to everyone who attended and brought Main Street to life.

The Maldon Easter Parade

The 142nd Maldon Easter Parade was held today and The Maldon Easter Fair must be one of Australia’s longest running Easter festivals.

The parade was a success again this year thanks to the hard work of the Maldon Easter Fair organisers.

Many imaginative, fun and though provoking floats and entries entertained the street which was packed with people watching.

Here are some photos that were shared to Instagram of the parade.
