Employment and Volunteer Opportunities

Agricultural shows are a mix of exhibition, competition, festivities, commerce, education, arts and culture that have been very popular in Australia for nearly two centuries. 

Shows have been many families’ annual traditional outing for generations and as an institution is a fascinating culture that seems indignant about changing or dying. 


  • It costs nothing to become a volunteer.

  • Volunteers are a valuable community asset and without them the show movement will definitely cease to exist.

  • Agricultural shows have a long history of involving volunteers from every part of the community.

Volunteers are involved in:

  • Event Management

  • Judging / Time Keeping

  • Fundraising / Entertainment

  • Grounds Maintenance

  • Sponsorship / Site Sales

  • Marketing

  • Security

  • Committees

  • Office Support

  • Youth Activities

  • Website / Social Media
