An integral part of our local community

Country shows continue to play a vital role in Australian culture and agricultural shows had evolved a lot since their inception in the nineteenth century when they primarily showcased new innovations and aimed to improve productivity.

Country shows are a highlight of the regional events calendar! They boost business and are an opportunity for farmers to showcase their produce and livestock.

Shows bring together all the best things about regional communities – even after tough years dealing with impacts of bushfires, drought and COVID-19, bringing communities together has never been so important.

Kyogle Show is a two-day event showcasing all things pastoral, agricultural and horticultural. Competitors from far and wide try their luck in our vast program of events. Several sections can take our competitors all the way to Sydney Royal to compete at the famous Easter Show!

With so much to see and do for the whole family, you won’t be disappointed!
