Camping at the showgrounds was available for the general public for short term visitors however the Council no longer permits this. While camping is available for event specific Showground meetings such as dog & horse shows exhibitors attending the Council sponsored Harbour festival & other large community events "may" have to look elsewhere. The show society receives no direct council funding btw.

Every Tuesday one of our pavilions hosts adult art classes in the mornings & childrens classes in the afternoon
