Here’s another selection of images from the trucking world on Instagram. We start off with a rather large bulldog looking got wrong direction. No idea why the bulldog is on there and where it is going. It is not a golden bulldog only a silver one, which would suggest this truck does not have a 100 per cent Mack driveline.
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.
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:

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.

This latest information video from the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) is well made, but is it well targeted? There is a lot of information to get out there and a lot of stakeholders who need to get a handle on the new chain of responsibility rules, but how effective is this video and how much did it cost?

Here are a few samples of the images loaded into Instagram on the road. Drivers taking a shot while the move. The wonders of equipment like Go Pros and camera clamps make it all possible.
We’ve been seeing plenty of wet weather on our roads recently:
This is especially a problem on some of our wonderful dirt roads:
If there is no mud on the road, we get back to the other problem, dust!
This week we are looking at the world of trucks according to instagram. Apparently, they are all conventionals!
Great shot into the sunrise.
A penguin towing a fridge van, how appropriate?
