If you have an interest in learning more about traditional agricultural and pastoral practices in Australia, the Flinders Island Show represents a great chance to discover Tasmania’s fascinating rural heritage.

You will be able to get a close look at sheep, cattle and wool displays, as local competitors vie for the best-of-show awards.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy a wonderful range of exciting events, such as equestrian and wood chopping – two all-time favourites for the whole family.

Fresh and locally-produced goods will be available in the home industries area and trade hall – a day at the show is incomplete if you don’t walk away with a selection of the best items on offer.

With evening entertainment and children’s activities – including a merry-go-round, jumping castle and a variety of games – this is an ideal way to spend an afternoon.

Tasmanian shows are some of the best in the country and during spring and summer there are always a number to choose from as you take a tour around the state.

This year the annual event takes place on October 14.

Flinders Island is the main island of the Furneaux group – a collection of 52 islands stretching across Bass Strait between Tasmania and mainland Australia.
