It’s Mount Isa showtime and there is a host of attractions to keep the family entertained this Friday and Saturday.

Dinkum Dinosaurs should be a hit with the kids with shows at 10.30am and 3pm while the moving, roaring, animatronic dinosaur trail is open all day. There’s also the chance to get up close with the animals of Luke’s Reptile Kingdom with a various of reptiles and venomous snakes on offer.

Take our poll on whether you'll be attending the Show

There will also be Viv’s Animal Farm and Shearing giving a taste of animal activities which what shows are about, so come and cuddle the cute little goats and lambs, hold a chicken or guinea pig, pat an alpaca, see the chickens and ducks that are found around farms, learn about what the different animals are, and just have fun. Come to bottle feeding of the younger animals at 9am and 5.30pm

If you would like to go for a walk, take Frosty or Shadow the alpacas or Velvet the goat for a walk around the show grounds

You can learn about wool and how it gets from the animals to a garment.

There will be farm animal work shops and sheep shearing shows.

Also at the Show is Bubble Muffin. Bubble Muffin Cooking Classes are a sensory explosion of colour, movement, smell, touch and taste.  

Check out the bronco branding both days, the PBR both nights while Bulldust (Friday) and Ali S (Saturday) concerts are sure to entertain.
