For almost seven decades,

the Redcliffe Show has stunned visitors with its variety and authenticity, and this year will be no exception. 

From the fast-paced motorsport action in the main arena to the Northside Beekeepers’ Association’s honey display, the Show will delight visitors over the weekend of 30 June to 2 July. 

Member for Redcliffe, Yvette D’Ath said the show had been a vital part of the fabric of the Redcliffe community for decades — with benefits flowing to participating businesses, charities and service clubs. 

“The Redcliffe Show is possibly the most family friendly inclusive shows in the State; making a solid commitment to enable all of our community to participate,” said Ms D’Ath.  

Last year, hundreds of early-year school children attended the show preview on People’s Day.

“[This] included wonderful displays prepared by schools from across the Peninsula and an up-close experience with domestic and farm animals,” said Ms D’Ath.

“Friday is free for children, and adults can enter on Friday for only $2 with a newspaper voucher — enjoying some $30,000 worth of free fireworks and a ring program including both the ELJAY and Caboolture Moto Cross and the motorbike Globe of Death.”

Daily entertainment and displays will include an animal nursery, works by local schoolchildren, woodcraft, Luke’s Reptile Kingdom and magic shows by local entertainer Eric Summons (12pm daily).

Show goers will be able to enjoy camel rides, show bags, a scrumptious selection of food vendors and a treat from Lollypop, the roving clown.

If you’re up for a thrill, head over to the main arena where you will be able to catch the show jumping throughout the day, and the night-time rumble of the Trackskill V8 Ute Challenge and other motorsport performances. 

For those attending on the Friday or Saturday evening, be sure to finish your experience at the main arena for the massive fireworks display. 

The 68th annual Redcliffe Show will be held from Friday 30 June to Sunday 2 July at the Redcliffe Showgrounds. Admission for adults $12, children $5, pensioners $5.
