Cloncurry Show – Friday and Saturday, June 16 and 17
The fun, festivities and celebration of all things Cloncurry will kick off tomorrow at the 38th Cloncurry Show.
The two-day event is shaping up to be one of the biggest celebrations in the town’s calendar in recent years seeing thousands come together in showcasing ‘best in the west’.
Show society president Drew Hacon said 2017 promises to be ‘quite the show’.
Not only are the pavilion and cattle entries up and the trade stalls bursting at capacity, the show will play host to the Governor General Sir Peter Cosgrove on Saturday.

The show will also perfectly coincide with the arrival of the C150 steam train.
“We expect there will be a great vibe and buzz of excitement at the show with everything happening,” Mr Hacon said.
“The Governor General will arrive at the show around 11am and will be taken around the various areas of the show by the committee before being given the honour of opening the pavilion.
“We were happy to have his office approach us; it will be the first time a Governor General has attended the show. We couldn’t be happier with the way things have come together.”
The show will be a great opportunity for families to access a range of entertainment without breaking the budget. From first class horse events, ringers rally to cattle displays, live music and entertainment and pavilion entries, show goers will find themselves constantly entertained.
Show committee members have worked tirelessly and with great enthusiasm for months, to be able to present the amazing array, Mr Hacon said.
Families won’t want to miss the conclusion of the show on Saturday night. The Ernest Henry Fireworks display will be “the best outside of Brisbane” in its new format.
The main arena will be transformed to create a 360 degree fireworks display by Skylighter and is not to be missed.
The party will continue after the show with performances by The James Johnston Band and Missy Lancaster.
