NOW THAT’S A BIG TANK! From our Pre COVID-19 Wonderful Country Music Muster, funds were raised to buy this huge tank system connected to our stable area. This great event would not have been created and continued to be successfully run if it were not for these selfless, talented volunteers, Barry, Myra, Beverley, visiting friends and of course our resident artists Rex & Val. As Rex says, “It’s family, and we wouldn’t have it any other way”. Thank you all, you are a great part of the Gunnedah Show Society!
Three other particularly important parts to a successful Muster is our SPONSORS, ARTIST and of course our GUEST! Thank you to Gunnedah Automotive - (02) 6742 2499, Brown's Tyre service - , The Chip Inn - (02) 6742 0329 www.facebook.com/chipinngunnedah/, Peel Valley Machinery (02) 6768 3111 www.facebook.com/peelvalleymachinery and our truly kind anonymous donor.
Thank you to our line-up of Award-winning artist and talented Walk-ins.
When I asked Rex, “how would you describe the Country Music Muster visitors? His reply was, “Well they are energetic, enthusiastic, just all-round great people from every corner of Australia".
Thank you again to you all!!
Attached are some pictures from our Musters, and our gorgeous Annual Bag Ball stars...

So dissappointing for you guys. Was so looking forward to it. I see no logic in this decision outside of Sydney.

WHAT AN EXCITING VIEW…
Today sees the installation of the new arena adjustable lights to facilitate larger night events at the Gunnedah Show Grounds. This is all part of the $1.5m ‘Stronger Country Communities Fund’ from the NSW Government awarded to Gunnedah Shire Council.
Other projects underway are the installation of an accessible toilet/shower block to accommodate current and future usage, the new custom-designed soft-fall/rodeo ring, permanent cattle yards, equestrian manure pit, new public address system and new power poles, construction of six shaded, picnic shelters and the replacement of grandstand seating with portable, accessible and tiered grandstand seating. Accessible pathways will also be constructed at the rear of the Gunnedah Gymnastics Centre and the Kennel Club amenities block will be upgraded.
A big thank you goes out to our local residence and volunteers who helped Council identify and prioritise areas requiring upgrades. We are so grateful and excited to see our beloved Gunnedah Show Grounds undergoing such major improvements, the outcome of such works will only be positive for our Community, attracting more events, vendors and visitors to our area. ...
