Flinders Island Show Day
The Flinders Island Show takes place on Palana Road on the western side of the island and is a big annual tourist draw, bringing in crowds from all over Tasmania, Australia, and the world. It is primarily an agricultural show but has many other attractions as well.
You will see sheep, cattle, and wool on display, which makes sense since grazing is the number one industry on the island. In fact, Flinders Island exports wool, beef, and lamb meat. There will be competitions for the best cows and sheep and the finest wool quality.
There will also be various horse-related events, a wood chopping competition, produce on display and for sale, arts and crafts exhibits, and plenty of convenience foods available. In the trade hall, you can also learn about the island's rural industries, traditional homemade products.
▸Look for kids' activities like merry go round rides, jumping castles, and carnival rides and games. This year the show has decided to trial a pre ordering system for the showbags. The catalogues and or forms can be found in Bowmans store Orders have to be in by June 28th.
Look out for information regarding the Cabaret and the Theme
