Bendigo National Swap Meet
In 1975 the annual Swap meeting which had been run at Gisborne the previous year and prior to that, 2 years in Melbourne, was moved to Bendigo and by agreement the management was handed over to the Veteran Vintage & Classic Club Bendigo.
The Federation remains the owners of the Swap and is proud of the growth that this event has seen since its inception.
