It is always our goal to make this years Show better than the last and one we hope leaves lasting memories in those that attend.
This year's entertainment line up includes the return of EL Jay's Freestyle Stuntmen. El Jay and his team consist of highly skilled professional riders who continually amaze their crowds with spectacular moves, gravity defying action and a little comic relief. El Jay's team perform on both motorbikes and bicycles and are appearing on Friday only. So you dont want to miss this....
2016 also sees the first ever appearance of Epic Darren at Show Whitsunday. Epic Darren is Australia's funniest Anti Stuntman peforming a miz of comedy and "Epic" stunts. Epic Darrens inspiration comes from famous stuntmen worldwide and sees it as his quest to see his name up in lights with these legends of stunt-ology.

Plus what would be a show without the ever-popular Side Show Alley with all your favourite rides and serious junk food - waffles, fairy floss and hot dogs.
Agricultural events this year include cattle, poultry and non-stop action in the Equestrian Ring, as well the annual cane competition and the ever popular Woodchop Competition ringside both days. For the horsing fraternity we have the Western Ring events returning for the first time in many years on Saturday. Equestrian events are seeing a welcomed resurgence in our region with new clubs forming and exisitng clubs thriving. We would not be able to provide these events with the assistance of our local equestrian clubs.
We also have the ever-popular arts, crafts, photography, needlework, cooking, horticulture and produce competitions.
And remember, all proceeds from our Show go back into improving and maintaining showground facilities for community use and to keep our Annual Show alive for all of our families and friends to enjoy in the future.
It’s your Show – enjoy!
