Every week Diesel News likes to feature photos from around Australia of the trucking industry showing up on Instagram. Here’s this weeks pictures, with a positive image, a skills show-off, a classic conventional and a short B-double.
We bring you the best pictures of the week on Instagram, from around Australia. We start out West in the Pilbara, there’s look a nice looking Bulldog from Port Kembla, checking out a mine road before pulling the trailers into trouble, delivering to Bunnings and carting cattle in an AB-triple.
Heather welcomes a visitor to the Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls yard in Karratha:
This one of the Ross fleet out of the NSW South Coast:
It’s always a good idea to check out a delivery site you are unfamiliar with before committing a few trailers onto a narrow road:
Can you hire excavators at Bunnings now?:
Carting cattle in an AB-triple:
This week we are heading around Australian trucking with Instagram and finding a well equiped Acco, a beautiful sunrise and a truckie wedding arrest.
Underneath, it’s an Acco! Looking Good!
Here’s a great sunset/sunrise shot:
We’re not quite sure what’s going on here:
Top trucking Instagrammers get some great shots of their trucks and share them with the world each week.
The first hour after sunrise and the last hour before sunset are known as the ‘Golden Hour’ by photographers. This truck really pops in the low sunlight as sunset approaches:
Parking the truck on a wet yard always gives you great reflections in the image:
Another ‘Golden Hour’ shot with the low sun adding to the richness of the shot:
This week we take a tour around the trucking world on Instagram with road trains in the Territory, hay on the move and a truck only a mother could love.
Unloading a double road train in Mataranka:
Loaded up with with a bit of hay, but not too much:
Ever since its introduction, I have never been too sure about the aesthetics of the design of the current Renault range:
This week, we have another look at the wonderful world of Instagramming truckies. There’s the Altona Truck and Trade Show, a classy looking Argosy and a classic Cummins engine.
The truck show at Altona drew the super stars of Australian trucking, and these two guys!:
Nice custom job on this Argosy, just don’t take it down any rough roads:
Love the comment on this, ‘They sounded grouse with sporties!’
There are plenty of great truck shots on Instagram, truckies getting to the heart of what trucking’s all about. Here’s a selection with a sunrise shot, a storm is coming and it’s beer o’clock.
On this shot, don’t look at the sunrise, look at the shine on the tanks:
Getting the truck out and home before the storm hits:
The cattle are unloaded, the trailers have been washed out, now it’s time to get a beer:
This week’s look at the Instagram view of road conditions in Australia sees varied experiences for truck drivers around the country, followed by a stunning sunset.
It’s been dry on some of our highways:
And it’s been very wet on plenty of other highways:

Here’s an atmospheric shot of an AAB quad:
Diesel News checks out Australian trucking according to Instagram. It’s a chance for trucks to show off their trucks or their photography skills
Here’s a great shot using backlighting to create some dust and some atmosphere:
The Mack Anthem came out in the USA last year. The question is as to whether this new styling from the US truck maker may be introduced as part of a future model range here in Australia? Watch this space!
Here we have another truckie/photographer getting the lighting just right. The natural light from the roof lights and doors mixes with the artificial light from the big sodium lamps to achieve just the right effect:
This week Diesel News has found some big stuff on Instagram. If you drive a big truck it makes you proud, so you want to take a photo. If you’re proud, you want everyone to know about it, so you put it on Instagram!
Here’s an older image from HHA Megatrucker.
Here’s a cattle carter with a few trailers in tow.
