George the Farmer

We are very excited to announce a VERY SPECIAL GUEST will be joining us for the 2018 Campbell Town Show.  George the Farmer will be coming along to help us celebrate 180 years of agriculture in the Tasmanian Midlands.  It is his first time to Tasmania, so we think it is entirely appropriate that he be visit the longest consecutively running agricultural show in the British Commonwealth.

Bring the kids along to the Campbell Town Show Friday 25th and Saturday 26th May for their chance to meet George and learn why agriculture is so important for the future of Tasmania and Australia. We will share an schedule of George’s shows very soon!
