The Exhibition Hall includes home cooking, preserving, agricultural produce, floral displays as well photography, arts and crafts. A huge attraction for schools is the ‘Tasmanian Wool Centre Prize’ for schools. Popular and highly regarded guests in the fields of preserving, cooking and gardening are a feature of the Exhibition Hall. They judge, demonstrate their skills and provide opportunities to chat and share their knowledge and skills.

The famous ‘Man Cake’ competition is one of the Exhibition Hall highlights. Adult and Children’s schedules are available with new sections each year. Competitions are open for all ages and we warmly invite you to enter.

If you would like to view the Exhibition Hall Schedule or submit an Entry to the Exhibition Hall you can do so via the Entries tab.
