We're only one short week away from what has been touted as the largest swap meet in the southern hemisphere and the excitement is palpable.
Around 5000 people per hour are expected to travel trough the gates at the airport to see the over 40 hectares of unique vintage treasures.
This year's event will feature the additions of a dedicated Kids Zone boasting dodgem cars, carnival rides, inflatables and other activities for families to enjoy.
The 2019 Swap Meet will also include two 24-hour gates to allow access for all people at all times of the day.
Each year the Swap Meet donates about $50,000 - $60,000 to various groups while returning another $80,000 through Rotary Projects.
The can't miss event will take place next weekend over February 22 and 23.
