Come One, Come All - it's Showtime!
The Australia Agricultural Show has long-been a favorite national institution in Australia, attracting tens of thousands of people to these most popular events. Today, the Agricultural Show retains the same grass-roots celebrations of regional food, drink, competition, and display of yesteryear, while a dash of the glitzy and glamorous, high-energy and adrenaline pumping Carnival excitement has been added for good measure.
Pastoralists wash, brush and parade their stock; farmers display their crops; cooks try to win "best preserves"; retailers demonstrate new tractors, friends watch the show jumping, kids pat alpacas and visit the carnival and people eat, drink, shop and enjoy a good day out. At every show, through all these activities, exhibitors, sellers and spectators are learning about agriculture, about how, where and why we produce our food.
While agriculture and farming still takes center stage, the Agricutural Show has evolved and now features spectacular entertainment, multicultural food outlets, fashion displays, exhilarating amusement attractions and much more. Enjoy the ride!
