Wallamba District Show

THE WALLAMBA DISTRICT SHOW – A BRIEF HISTORY:

Officially known as The Wallamba District Agricultural & Horticultural Show, but more commonly known to locals as The Nabiac Show, the annual agricultural show started in 1911. Here is a little excerpt from our local newsletter which covers a little history of the Show:

2014 NABIAC SHOW

A hot and sunny Autumn day. Our entries were pretty poor in 2014, only rosemary from Bec H (which won 1st prize in the Open Herb section) and a Lego creation by Thomas and space Lego display by The Kid (which won 2nd prize), in the Hobby section of the Children’s Program.

Cancelled and washed-out, but the judging still went ahead! To read more about the 2013 Show, click here and here.
