This popular agricultural show is a major exhibition with open stalls showcasing agricultural equipment and livestock. This is a traditional Australian show, which originated from Elmore in 1964. Today, the event is held over several locations in the Yarra Valley, with thousands of visitors yearly.

This year, there will once again feature exhibitors ranging from farm machinery, light industrial equipment, motor vehicles and motorbikes, irrigation equipment and water tanks to information on the latest pest & weed control, fertilisers and chemicals.

Demonstrations and displays of a wide variety of new equipment, such as chainsaws, ride-on mowers, retractable water sprayers and pruning techniques, will be available. Information on the packaging, transporting and labelling of fruit will also be available. Motor vehicles & 4WDs will be well represented, with many exhibitors featuring relevant products.

Government departments, including the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Southern Rural Water, Melbourne Water and Energy Safe Victoria, will be featured.

Finance, real estate, insurance, local employment agencies, mobile telephone companies, and various grower organisations will be present.

The Field Days are an excellent opportunity for children to see a glimpse of rural life and have close contact with a variety of animals in an informative environment.

As always, there are many special events and displays planned. Amongst the many activities, they have BK Carving, an award-winning local chainsaw sculptor, Herding Dog Training with displays of working dogs and the opportunity to get your working dog involved, and of course, a great range of tasty food and drink.

A popular attraction at the Field Days is the display of machinery of yesteryear, and the Yarra Valley Machinery Preservation Society will once again feature a working display of their restored machinery for visitors to the venue.

Many hours and much care are devoted to the restoration of the machinery, and the members are thrilled to share their stories and discuss the features of their displays.

The popular “General Interest Exhibits” will once again provide a forum for a diverse range of local crafts and produce, with many exhibitors showcasing actual demonstrations of their products.

Arts and crafts, patchwork, lavender products, community organisations, gardening products, ladies’ and children’s clothing and confectionery will feature, along with such demonstrations as weaving and leatherworking.
