Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Fun Day Show Day! 2024 Show Whitsunday

This year marks the 111th year of the annual Show Whitsunday.

Starting in 1912, the show has always been a cornerstone of local life, a time when the community gather and celebrate the lifestyle we love here in the Whitsundays.

With horse shows, cattle grading, garden produce competition, two-days of wood cutting, a poultry pavilion, a local sugar cane exhibit and many more, the rural life of our region is on display for all to see.

Children can cuddle a chicken or play with a baby goat at the friendly petting zoo, they can be amazed at the strength of the competitors at the wood-chop and watch as the horses race around the equestrian ring.

For the thrill seekers, there are classic show ground rides for those seeking that rush of adrenaline.

Zoom around on the bumper cars, spin your heart out on the zipper, or scream out loud of the ‘Surge’.

Explore the fun house, get an aerial view of the bright lights from the Ferris Wheel and explore the sideshow alley.

Catch a yellow duck, throw a ball at clown, fire a shot at a target and see what prize you could bring home with you.

With so much action, you’ll never want to go home!

Tickets are available now to purchase, buy the two day pass and save!
