Lights on the Hill Memorial Convoy

Free - $50

The Lights on the Hill memorial convoy weekend is the largest of its kind in Queensland and the event provides an avenue to honour those drivers no longer with us, and to recognise the truckies still carrying our country. It gives the families of drivers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice, an opportunity to socialise with their loved one’s mates as well as make the wider community aware of the devastating losses the Transport Industry faces every day.

The 2021 Memorial convoy will be held Saturday 2nd Oct and will depart Toowoomba and Brisbane simultaneously at 9.30am with an approximate arrival time at Gatton from 10.45am. The Western Convoy will depart Brown and Hurley Carrington Road Toowoomba and the Eastern convoy will depart from Cnr Whimbrel St & Sandpiper Ave Port of Brisbane. 

Gates open at the Gatton Showgrounds at 9am and there will be market/food & trade stalls, kids' rides, live music and lots of trucks!!!

Truck drivers are the backbone of the Australian economy and without trucks Australia would stop. This has never been more evident than with the current pandemic. Unfortunately it is not a job without risks, and the names already adorning the memorial wall are a testament to that. It's important for Australians everywhere to know and recognise that truck drivers are just everyday people with an extraordinary job. It’s their efforts on Australian roads that helps keep the country running, and for this, in life as well as death, they deserve recognition and respect.
