Convicts and Classics at historic Woolmers Estate

People were transported through dozens of decades during Woolmers Estate’s Sunday car show.

Like a scene from a movie, vintage cars from the 19th and 20th centuries parked at the historic grounds. 

The common Commodore drew interest, but it was the 1917 Wolesely that gained most of the attention.

It was one of the six cars that were owned by the property patrons, the Archer family.

Throughout the day about 1800 people took advantage of a beautiful spring day to visit the estate, view the hundreds of cars and historic bikes, and listen to live music. 

Longford resident Robert Paul took his three-year-old son Lachlan and 12-day-old baby Oliver to the event in their Lanchester Ten LD10.

As the children slept in the car, Mr Paul said it was great to enjoy a family day out at the event.

The World Heritage listed Woolmers Estate will also celebrate its birthday with a 200 years of fashion event later in the year and a bicentennial reunion on the weekend of October 7.
