The 2019 Garrett Melbourne Jamboree @ Swan Hill Dragway will kick off on Friday the 15th with a huge test day scheduled, then Saturday 16th will showcase qualifying, and Sunday 17th will feature first class racing.

“This brand new Jamboree event has been made possible thanks to the support of not only the Swan Hill Dragway management but also Swan Hill Rural City Council,” said Jamboree Director, Collin Willshire.

“We have been working behind the scenes to bring this brand-new event to life for the past several months and are now very excited to be able to announce our plans for what will be a fantastic weekend of entertainment in one of Victoria’s most attractive Murray River towns.
