Gunnedah Show Society held its first show in 1888 and has grown to be one of the premier agricultural and entertainment events in North West New South Wales. The Gunnedah Show Society is a non-for-profit organisation serving the community. It is made entirely of volunteers who give their time effortlessly to provide an opportunity for people from across the region and interstate the opportunity to participate in an agricultural show.
Gunnedah is the hub of one of Australia’s richest agricultural regions – the Liverpool Plains in North West New South Wales and is located on the Kamilaroi and Oxley Highways. The Gunnedah Showground is located in the centre of Gunnedah and is close to all facilities and is well laid out with plenty of parking and has one of the best arenas in New South Wales. You can watch the action from every point and enjoy great county hospitality. One of the things that bring people back each year is the true county spirit and hospitality.
The facilities have been built by volunteers and continue to be updated as changes are needed. As the population and industries change locally so does the show – catering for a wide range of interests. Gunnedah Show Society holds many events during the year which include – the Annual Show, Campdraft, Agquip Rodeo, Country Music Muster, and Rose Show and support numerous other events by volunteering their time.
We hold our monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of the month at 7pm under the grandstand at the showground. We welcome new members who would like to become ‘part of the Show’ so get in touch and find out how you can get involved and join our friendly team of volunteers.
