Held on the 3rd weekend of October, the Mount Gambier show is largest of its kind after the Royal Adelaide Show. In fact, the show sees up to 10,000 people during its three-day event every year. People from all parts of South Australia and other states come here to enjoy this unique show which showcases all that is good from the Mount Gambier region.

The Mount Gambier show boasts an array of trade exhibits, cattle stalls, horseback riding, sheep yards and dog trials. You will also find a number of food stalls, shopping stores and gift outlets as well. In addition, the show offers a variety of free shows and entertainment options for visitors.

To help children learn more about local agriculture, the Agriculture Learning Centre offers certain programs and activities of local school kids. During these interactive sessions children get a chance to learn more about agriculture whilst milking cows and feeding animals.

The rides at the show this year include the Kamakazee, Hard rock, Alibaba, Cyclone, Skydiver, Ferris wheel, Sizzler, Trippa, Fun factory, Dragon coaster, Bungee tramp, The tea cups, Water balls, Dodgem Cars, Jumping castles, and Trains. And each year the show concludes with a magnificent fireworks display.

So come to the Showgrounds in Mount Gambier with your entire family to enjoy this fun-filled event.
