Australian Events rolls out the welcome mat to visitors and exhibitors for its Farm Fantastic – a great day out for the whole family, where you will be able to buy anything from hats to 10-tonne tractors.

Visitors to the 2017 Farm Fantastic Expo are in for a real treat, with a number of great prizes up for grabs! To celebrate the launch of the new Kubota M7-151 Tractor, David Evans Group is giving all visitors the chance to guess the weight of the tractor to go into the draw to WIN a Kubota Z122RKW-42-AU Zero Turn Mower, valued up to $6300!

Visitors can also WIN a Fruit Salad Tree, a tree that grows up to six different fruits all on the one tree, daily in the Backyard Living Pavilion, thanks to the Fruit Salad Tree Company. DT Rustproofing are also giving away a Speedliner Spray on Ute Liner, valued up to $990.

More than 200 companies are exhibiting, displaying a large variety of top quality products and services, everything from the latest in farm machinery and vehicles through to sheds, tanks, tools and mowers, PLUS products and services for the backyard, gourmet foods, produce, plants, wines, and so much more.

There is a huge line up of entertainment all weekend, including Backyard Living Presentations to get your garden growing with well-known horticulturists, Claire Bickle, Noel Burdette and Paul Plant, with tips and tricks for everything from edible plants to backyard chooks!

Former Australian swimming coach and water safety ambassador Laurie Lawrence will be mingling among the farmers and the hundreds of rural and lifestyle exhibits at the Expo. Mr Lawrence will spread the word of Kids Alive – Do The Five at the Poolwerx Bribie Island site on Friday 9am to 11am, 30th June, and will also be on stage at 11am to read the book “Boo’s adventures on the Farm”.

Ken Sykes from Haig Farm Working Border Collies will have Working Dog Demos each day, along with Australian Horse Academy Demonstrations with Michael Sekulich.

Tempt your taste buds at Destination Food featuring home style cooking, healthy eating options and cooking demonstrations with the Two Old Ducks.

All are invited to meet the gentle and productive Alpacas that are bringing increasing value to the agriculture industry, and great personality to Australian farming. Friday will be a busy day with Fleece Judging going on whilst the showring will have a Junior Judging competition and a Junior Paraders competition. There will also be a halter judging competition on Saturday and Sunday.

The kids are just going to love and adore Old Macdonald’s Travelling Farms at Farm Fantastic Expo – there will be plenty of things to look at and touch, and catch the free train around the event so you have time to see everything!

Free return shuttle buses from the City to the Caboolture showgrounds are organised to help overcome the unavoidable parking issues.

Farm Fantastic Expo runs 30th June to 2nd July 2017 at the Caboolture Showgrounds, open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 8:30am – 4pm.

Costs are $10 for adults, $8 for Aged Seniors Card holders and children with an adult are free.
