Are you trying to keep the kids busy during school holidays, or simply identify as a revhead? Either way, there’s plenty of Brisbane car shows to choose from.

As a natural wonderland, Queensland is famous for its white sandy beaches, stretches of rainforest, tropical islands, waterfalls and more. In fact, travellers are often spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing just one destination for their next holiday, particularly for those looking to escape the cities and get up close and personal with the great outdoors. 

Aside from our climate, Queenslanders are also renowned for being car lovers. Whether your genre of choice is American muscle, head turning hotrods or the timeless Aussie panel van, Brisbane car shows are dime a dozen – but what are our top picks for events happening in July?
