I took my boys along to check out these BIG trucks, and they did not disappoint! There is over $4.5 million worth of Cat machinery on display.

Straight away, the boys were excited to see the excavators, thanks to Blippi they are big fans! It was great to see them up close and be able to teach them some fun facts about their favourite piece of machinery!

But the highlight was definitely being able to jump inside one of the mini excavators!  Weather dependent, you can actually have a go at operating the excavator too. Secretly I think the dads loved it just as much as the kids.
