Is the event pet-friendly?

Unfortunately, it is not a dog-friendly event. With our dogs, goats and horses on the loose in the arena, there’s too much risk of things going wrong. Unfortunately, we have had to enforce a blanket rule following some incidents in the past with dogs running out into the arena and barking at the livestock during the show.  f guests do bring dogs, we request they are left at vehicles in the shade with access to water.

We do welcome guide dogs.

Are food and drinks available?

Generally, yes. We will send an email out in the days prior to the event confirming the food and drinks and whether EFTPOS is accepted. Every venue is different and have their own opportunities and constraints. Sometimes things change last minute and we have to make alternative plans.

Do you cater for specific dietary needs?

As many of the groups we work with are volunteers/ fundraisers, we cannot guarantee they can cater for specific needs. As such, we are happy for guests to bring a picnic but do request you support those fundraising for local organisations. Unless advised otherwise, strictly no alcohol or glass is permitted.
