The Agricultural show connects city, town and country. The Ag Show event is an opportunity to reflect on the paddock to plate relationship, the value of our farmers, the value of the Australian food bowl. The Agriculture Show is an important ritual, reinforcing  a sense that we are not just floating in the present, that we are also anchored in an older way of doing things.

"Since the nineteenth century, Australia’s agricultural shows have provided us with opportunities to reflect on the values and aspirations of our communities; celebrate achievements ranging from excellence in cattle breeding to the beauty of a delicate piece of embroidery; and enjoy a break from the routine of everyday life. A place of work and leisure, education and entertainment, the annual agricultural show is still an important event in hundreds of communities across Australia." 1950's news Australian TV Broadcast.
