The annual swap festival of Ballarat is one of the great collecting events in Australia. The festival is held in the airfield near the city. During the two days of the festival, old cars and spare parts are presents for sale or swap side by side with old home stuff.
Thousands of people, local and tourists pour into town and the demand for accommodation is higher than usual, therefore it is advisable to check hotel prices and make reservations ahead of time.
The surrealistic view of the mass of old cars leaves the visitors speechless. The two days event attracts hundred of presenters and thousands of visitors every year.
