Katherine Show

Hit the road and head 300km southeast for the 54th annual Katherine Show. Held on the third weekend of July each year – with free equestrian and campdraft events on Tuesday to Thursday in the lead up – this weekend of family show fun officially kicks off with the Grand Parade on Friday afternoon. 

Since 1965, the Katherine Show has threaded together the many areas of the region including farming, culture, business and craft. About 15,000 people descend on Katherine each year for the show, with visitors pulling up stumps in town to make a weekend out of it. 

There’s something for the whole family. Fun-filled activities include rodeo, exhibition stalls and competitions, and challenges including lawn mower and wheelie bin races. And, of course, the show rides, amusements and free entertainment including Circus Challenge, Dinkum Dinosaurs, Viv’s Farm Animals, Big Bang Education, Saturday night Fireworks, and much more!
