The 93rd Annual Gulargamone Show
THE sounds of sideshow alley, the sights of the main arena and the smells of the pavilion – there is no time like show time.
All the fun of the show will come to the Coonamble Shire on Saturday, May 31 for the 93rd annual Gulargambone Show.
Gulargambone Show Society secretary Kirsty Fisher said the show was a growing event on the town’s annual calendar, and would this year feature proud contributions from the local farming, indigenous and school communities.
She said the star of the show was the Speed Shear, organised by local shearing contractor William Redington.
The shearing event encourages the integration and conversation of shearers so that they can grow professionally and learn new skills to build and maintain their position within the agricultural industry.
The speed shear event that was started in 1992 will hopefully continue to grow in strength and numbers with the show, and bring in travelers and support from all around.
“The leading high point scorers are invited to go on to the district competition held by Dubbo Shearing Supplies at Dubbo in June.”
Mrs Fisher said another highlight this year was the return of dog high jump, which would make a giant leap back into Gulargambone Show history, with small, medium and large dog categories.
“Junior judging is also a major event to promote the role of young people agriculture, which is a strong focus of our small and dedicated show committee,” Mrs Fisher said.
“The entertainment provided by the sideshow alley is a winner for the young and old, and the Gulargamone Rural Transaction Centre brings a great selection of home wares and fashion that is always a hit on the day.”
Hack, Galloway and pony riders will compete in the four-horse show ring, while the show pavilion will be transformed into a stunning gallery of photography, quilts, handicrafts, baked treats, jams and preserves.
The home brew section is becoming so popular Mrs Fisher said the local publican might soon have cause for concern.
“The talent that is displayed at the show really makes you proud to be involved in such a great country town,” she said.
“We hope to see the show continue and celebrate 100 years and more of bringing new faces, talent, economic growth, fun and laughter to Gulargambone, and providing a cheerful break for the community.”
Gate opens at 9am at the Gulargambone Show ground with events starting from 9.30am onwards.
General Admission for adults $10.00,
Children and pensioners $5.00
with a lucky gate prize proudly donated by Gulargambone Lions Club.
Hope to see you at the show!

The pavilion for 2014 is looking set to be a great display of talent and colour. We have had great interest from sponsors and participants keen to be involved this year. The scrap booking section has been given a huge boost this year, with Snazzi Scrappin' & Beads in Dubbo NSW, coming on board and sponsoring a $10 voucher to the winner in our 8 Classes. We hope that this will encourage all our talented and enthusiastic scrapbookers to enter in to the pavilion and give us a great glimpse into their world.
Imajenit has really come on board with the photography section this year. Jenet Stewart from imajenit has worked with us to update our classes to encourage all keen photographers especially those that use our social media and smart phones.
