The cornerstone of every great show is the pavilion display, and this year’s Cloncurry Show pavilion promises not to disappoint.

“The pavilion has a large number of sections including cooking, handicraft, photography, art, schoolwork, gardening and this year with Cloncurry celebrating its 150th year, we have a large history and bottle section that will be showcasing the history of the town,” she said.

“The Cloncurry Show has a lot of sections that are very popular with the residents of the district showcasing their talents.

“Competitors are proud of their work and the Cloncurry Show encourages healthy competition across all sections.”

In the cooking section alone there are 61 categories to browse, including a class just for boys. 

As in previous years, the pavilion will also host trade stalls, as well as entertainment alongside the static displays. 

“We have some new traders to the the pavilion, with a mix of the regular traders who visit the show each year,” Ms Curely said. 

Traders are at a record number, around double on last year.

Its aim is to tell the story of Cloncurry’s history through music and fashion starting from the 1860s and the decades which followed.
