We go regularly and thoroughly enjoy it. Yes I grant it looks rough and ready but don't let looks deceive you...in fact rather than "rough and ready" I would use the words of unique character.

There is a lot of quite original talent and clever use of very old and large whole trees used for various props such as seating, barriers, stage props, light towers etc...very clever and a very rustic feel to it.

One thing I will stress is that from a safety and security point of view they will tolerate absolutely no nonsense whatsoever. Any hint of trouble (and there is virtually none ever) the security are on to it in seconds and would stamp it out..... very safe venue for kids through to the very elderly.

The arena for the rodeo is excellent with great vantage points on all sides. Camping up close to the entrance can be quite crowded........more room up the road in the paddock adjoining the rodeo grounds. We go down by the river bank....quieter 5 mins walk and you can usually light a fire with all provided (seasonal conditions permitting)

Try and get down Friday morning and get a good camp site.

Seriously consider it .....I would be amazed if you didn't enjoy it...very relaxed, family friendly and no hassles at all


Life is a journey, it is not how we fall down, it is how we get up.

Bungarra thank you very much for the information that you have provided.I would be more than happy for a small walk to get there because i travel with a dog who is protective of his kennel on wheels and me.So i am happy to stay where i can walk him without other dogs or people to close.Mine is never of a lead but unfortunately not everybody does this.
Thank you i may see you there ,if you look at my profile the kennel sticks out.

When is it on? Wouldn't mind a break from the farm
