Attractions

The Bream Creek Show has many Attractions that help make our show a real country, family day out. Come along and see some of the traditional agricultural skills that are still in use today.

Steve Austin - Canine Trainer

Steve Austin - Canine Trainer

You can see demonstrations of sheep dog trials, shearing, draught horses (cutting chaff), country craft and steam engines. The little kids will absolutely love the Bendigo Bank animal nursery, Bonorong wildlife sanctuary stall, snake demonstration, the Kids' Tent, the Pelican Puppets and the Peter Bignall's sand sculpture. 2017 saw the introduction of Kids' Pony Rides, and excitingly, a kids' pumpkin bowling event!

For the older kids there are the steam engines, a tractor and bailer demonstration,"Toss the Blunnie" and ride-on lawn mower races, as well as the Sands' Family Circus, chainsaw sculpture in action, and you can have a go at "Guess the Weight of the Steer" - but don't worry, if you win you don't have to take the beast home with you! Instead, have a ride on our Mechanical bull. Afterwards, you can join in the pie eating competition or even the pikelet cook off.

There is always great music at the show each year; in 2017 we hosted Pat Curly (Blues musician), as well as the Wheelie Bin Orchestra, the Hot String Band, Jarrod & the Hunters, the Scary Family Band and the much loved Highland Pipe Band. The Giant Pumpsters rocked out the close of the show.

In 2017 we had some great attractions: Par Avion Helicopter rides, the Veteran Car Club display, Steve Austin with his professional canine display, and the Apple Isle Carriage driving display. The Flying Paws were in action, as was the Old Bits & Pieces Club. The Wattle Hill Junior Fire Brigade provided a demonstration, followed by a Tug of War. There was the Old vs New Machinery, Billy Tea and Damper at the old Forestry shed.

The whole family (especially Mums and Dads) could get something to eat and drink from the fine wine and dining aisle - fabulous ready-to-eat meals including Oysters and produce from the Bream Creek Farmers' Market. Wine from Cape Bernier, Bangor and Bream Creek Wines, or if that doesn't get your tastebuds working, a Gillespe's Ginger Beer with Extra Zing certainly will! In 2017 we are introduced a "Paddock to Plate" workshop, where we talk through the process of getting a beast from our paddock to your plate- a must-see for those who want to know more about where their food comes from and for foodies alike. The most recent show also saw the inaugural Oyster Shuck Off competition, and Tino Carnevale did a Q&A session about gardening and veggie growing.
