There will be something for everybody on Saturday March 3 at the 106th Nabiac Show.

Despite the show being dampened by rain in 2017 organisers are hoping for better weather this year.

For more than 100 years the Wallamba and District Agricultural and Horticultural Show, more commonly known as the Nabiac Show, has been showcasing the very best the district’s farming community has to offer.

Situated in Nabiac, just off the Pacific Highway south of Taree the Nabiac Showground is very easy to find. 

This might only be a small, one day show but it packs a lot of things in to keep everyone happy. And it’s very easy to get around.

Organisers endeavour to keep it a true agricultural show with ring events, show jumping,  milking goats, beef cattle, show dogs, pets and poultry all on show.

New this year are Noah’s Thoroughbred Racing Pigs and a How High Can Your Pooch Jump Competition. This is open to all dogs in the top ring and offers cash prizes.

Visitors can expect the usual selection of Hall displays including:

Needlework, craft, art, photography, cooking, knitting, painting, flowers and floral arrangements.

Nabiac Show boasts a particularly big children’s section.

Local schools will be entering projects in a number of sections with one particularly popular competition expected to impress visitors.

Organisers claim the entries each year for the children’s photography competition are “as good as the adults” and more children are being encouraged to enter.

Entry details for all sections can be found on the show website www.nabiac.com/show

For those looking for other forms of entertainment on the day there will be plenty to choose from.

There will also be demonstrations from the local knitters and spinners and the Manning Great Lakes Woodworkers. 

The day will finish with a few bangs. The popular demolition derby begins at 6.30pm and don’t miss the fireworks display at 8pm.

Gates open at 6am with most of the action starting at 8am.

Admission is $10 adults, $5 children (3-15 years) and aged or invalid pensioners (must have a concession card) and $30 for a family pass for two adults and three or more children.

A day pass for all the rides is $30.
