Bright lights: the sweeping planes of Cobar. This is where Mandy Hawke stayed on the way home from Cunumulla

Aussie sprirt: rural Queensland farmer Herm Martin and truck driver Wayne Lancaster who traveled all the way from Tasmania to be a part of the Hay Run.

Making a difference: hay is unloaded from the truck of Wayne Lancaster.

Party time: the Hay Runner's and locals make their way to Cullamulla Showgrounds.

Vast plains: a convoy of trucks arrive at Cobar for a well deserved lunch stop on their way provide relief to Aussie farmers doing it tough.

Sun burnt land: One of the farms just outside of Cullamulla.

Baring gifts: The Burrumbuttock Hay Runner merchandiser truck.

The man behind the plan: Hay Runner instigator and truck driver Brendan Farrell gives other drivers some instructions in Cunumulla.

The 13th Burrumbuttock Hay Run was another huge success, as a huge convoy of trucks made the enormous trip from Burrumbuttock in NSW to Cunnamulla, Queensland, to provide hay and other essential items to drought-stricken farmers who have been cruelled by brutal conditions.

These photos were taken by Cobram’s Mandy Hawke, who made the journey with Tasmanian truck driver Wayne Lancaster.
