All roads lead Noosa's authentic country show

SHOW TIME: Everyone is looking forward to the Noosa Show.
SHOW TIME: Everyone is looking forward to the Noosa Show.

THE Noosa Country Show will be celebrating 108 years on Friday and Saturday, September 15 and 16.

The show is a traditional country show with a variety of competition sections that celebrate the diversity of talented people who live in our community.

The show's very popular equestrian, stud beef, dairy cattle and dogs sections are the main animal sections and they feature in the grand parade each day.

The pavilion, with arts and craft, cookery, hort- iculture and fruit and veg sections is also a must-visit.

The show proudly hosts the Showman's Guild, which supplies the amusement arcade zone and all the rides that are a real thrill for big and little kids alike as they have everyone in a whirl.

Children can also meet and get a photo with a variety of entertainers across both days.

The show runs two stages for the two-day program, with music and performances across days and nights.

On Saturday, the big excitement is the Honky Tonk Rodeo in the new rodeo ring, featuring the saddle bronc, bareback and poddy calves, with open bull riding to follow.

The picturesque Pomona Showgrounds is a community asset that was donated back in 1908. The grounds is managed by the Noosa Show Society through a group of committed community volunteers.

Tickets can be pre-purchased at the show office. Phone 54852331. Adult one day: $15, child one day: $10, family one-day pass: $35 for two adults and up to three children, competitor weekend pass: $10 for people competing in the show.
