Experience the ground shaking thunder of an armoured column rolling by. Hear the rattle of guns and see the flashes, dust and smoke as you experience the effects of 20th Century mechanised warfare at Ironfest 2016. These coordinated battle activities, not experienced anywhere else in the world are now an annual highlight of the festival. This year with the inclusion of German vehicles will see a mighty clash of armour as tanks go head to head in a battle for domination of the Lithgow Showground.
The Australian Armoured Vehicle Association in conjunction with Applied Explosive Technology, Aus Re enact, The 2nd Army Group and Lithgow Living History re-enactors will undertake spectacular assaults against heavily defended positions using historic tanks and armoured vehicles. These attacks will be supported by blank firing weapons, smoke and explosive effects. Get ready for the new Battle Of Lithgow!
