ANIMAL ATTRACTIONS

ANIMAL EDUCATION NURSERY

The Animal Education Centre is always a popular feature of the Show.

It provides the opportunity to see and handle a variety of animals, from guinea pigs to  livestock and many more. The educational and interactive activities are not to be missed.

Demonstrations include sheep shearing, goat agility and rally dog obedience will take place.

This year we have worked hard to have a number of new displays available such as- AnimalAid, Toongabbie Lodge (Rescue Greyhounds), Alpacas and lots more.
