Only 3 More Sleeps Till Show Time!

Our wonderful partner team Compass have arrived onsite to start the final preparation for the 2019 Show. We appreciate their physical support but also the great smiles of satisfaction as they assist with paneling, backboards, cleaning and the lists goes on. Their pride is infectious and we love being around these wonderful people.  Thank you Compass.

Agricultural UNESCO Biosphere Consultation Opportunity

IF YOU GROW IT, EAT IT OR WANT TO FIND OUT MORE about what UNESCO branding could mean for rural production on  the Sunshine Coast  this is your opportunity to attend the information session, be informed and have your say!

Friday –   10.30am – 11.30am
Venue –   Wallace Pavillion (upstairs) near the entrance to where the horses enter the Main Ring.

This will give you a greater understanding  how this Recognition could  give advantages to our Agricultural sector through branding. The new Sunshine Coast Airport opening in 2020 is our gateway to the world, increasing our direct market  opportunities of agricultural products.

New Display

Looking forwards by Reflecting backwards 

Many thanks to the Oakes, Benfer and Middlebrook farming families together with Council’s Library and ‘Heritage Library’ we are able to share a snapshot of the cane industry that was once a major contributor to our local economy. The Film “Last Crush” reminds us of where we have been, with the new Tram continuing that story into our future journey.
There will be free cane juice tasting and lots of tales being told and photos on display.
We need your help:
*    Do you have a story about the cane industry on the Sunshine Coast that you would like to share?
*    Do you have any memorabilia that you could loan?
*    Would you like to assist at the display during the show?

Thank you also to the staff of the Sunshine Coast  Council Library for contributing to the display, their passion and energy are greatly appreciated.
