Cotton- Here For Good

Visit the Cotton Australia stand in the Woolworths Food Farm to pop on a VR headset and have a virtual tour of an Australian cotton farm and discover for yourself how cotton is a natural plant fibre that is carefully grown in managed environments.

You will be able to talk to cotton farmers and industry professionals to hear how Australian cotton is now a global leader in sustainable practices that produce more cotton on less land, with more efficient water use and with less impact on the environment than ever before.

Bee Hotel Kids Workshops

Where: Under awning outside Flower & Garden Pavilion, Showground Road
When: 8-19 April 2022 only at 10am and 3pm
The Bee Hotel Workshops are free for children and all materials are provided – along with a helping hand making them and hints and tips for hanging your hotel at home.

Life is sweetest when you have a place to call home, somewhere to rest your weary head and body after a hard day at work – and bees are no different. Help our fuzzy honey-makers with an environmentally friendly hotel they can check in and out of in between flitting to the flowers in your garden. Without bees 75% of our food crops would not exist, so these hotels are as much for our benefit as theirs.

Answering the age-old question... obviously the egg came first! Watch as little cracks appear and our baby chicks take their first tentative peep at the world around them. It's a magical sight for young and old... On average an egg takes 21 days from laying until the first 'pip' or crack appears and we have them hatching every day at the Show.
