Do you love llamas? Are you known around town as a bit of an alpaca fancier? Or perhaps you're just a friend to all of nature's cuddly creatures?

If so, then head to Burnie, Tasmania, for a two day regional agricultural show. Not only will there be a large display of all things agrarian in an industrial hall, there will also be plenty of rural show events which are always a family favourite.

Feast upon some fresh local produce – we hear the cheese is great – and view some of the area's animals, including the beloved alpacas.

There will also be home arts, a sideshow alley, plenty of other food and drink to snack on (candy floss, anyone?) and even rides which will have the kids occupied all day.

The show is taking place on 4-5 October, 2013 so be sure to clear your calendars now and get the family together for two fun-filled and fascinating days.

Burnie itself is a unique location to visit as Tasmania's most westerly city. There are plenty of shops and cafes that you can enjoy during your stay, as well as great galleries and exhibitions.

An impressive natural spectacle as well, there are gorgeous beaches and plenty of green parks and gardens for a stroll – so book a break to Burnie!
