Inverell Shows Society



The Inverell Show encourages community involvement to showcase what Inverell and its District has to offer. Come and watch the woodchop, whip cracking and horse riding events. Browse the pavilion full of arts, crafts and homemade cooking.

Maybe you would like to see what the town has to offer in tractors, mowers or motor vehicles. There are always plenty of animals to view whether its birds, poultry, sheep or cattle. As the sun sets enjoy the fireworks, rodeo, demolition derby or recapture your youth down sideshow alley.

Since 1868, for 150 years, the Inverell Show Society has hosted the local show. The first show was held on the banks of the Macintyre River behind what is now Coles. In 1873 it was moved to Kamilaroi Park which is now a sporting oval.

Our current location, which we have enjoyed since 1914, is the Inverell Showground which is on the Tingha Road on the edge of town.

Come along and join us on March 1st, 2nd and 3rd 2019 for our show.


As part of the Australian Government Drought Communities Programme, in conjunction with the Inverell Shire Council there will be FREE entry to our show for 2019.



Inverell Show Society would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who went out of their way to support and assist people in their time of need during the recent fires.

Fires are still burning; our community is still being supported by out of town fire brigades and the devastation that has occurred is horrific.

Our local area is so dry and with the current extreme weather conditions the Inverell Show Society has decided to cancel the fireworks at this year’s annual show.

Friday night is our rodeo and Saturday night the popular smash up derby. We have a petting zoo for the children, cattle and sheep dog trials, a polo x exhibition, stockman’s challenge, woodchop and much, much more so take the opportunity of free entry to the show and come along, enjoy the break from the current drought or fire situation and catch up with friends and take a well-earned break.

Hope to see you at the show.
