Show Day

It’s that once a year day – yes you guessed it – it’s Show Day! Grab the kids and get ready for a rip-roaring roller coaster ride of fun. Woohoo!

Take a seat in the grandstand and feel the anticipation as you cheer for family and friends competing in the most exhilarating day of the year. Hear the whack of the axe as it chops the wood, the baa of the crazy sheep as the dog expertly rounds them up and watch in awe as the horses clear those tricky jumps.

Come celebrate in the heart-warming glow of Show Day and be enchanted by a carnival of puppets. Oh, and keep an eye on the cheeky chooks – we hear they are planning an eggscape!
