2016 Ipswich Miss Showgirl

We are on the search for a young lady to represent the Ipswich Show Society and become the next IPSWICH MISS SHOWGIRL for the 2016 year. Nominations are now open for the 2016 Ipswich Miss Showgirl Competition. It's a great competition which is extremely well supported by local businesses and a great way to meet new people and make new friends. Information can be found at HERE.
We have had a lot of enquiry regarding camping at the Showgrounds over the weekend of the upcoming CMC Rocks QLD at Willowbank. Just a reminder that we don't take bookings for our short-term stay caravan facility. It is first in first served basis. The cost of a site is $20 per night, per site (or $25 if you are over 25ft). We will have volunteers staying on-site leading up to the event to assist with site allocations.

Dunny Derby Trailer Search

We are currently seeking trailers for our DUNNY DERBY at the Ipswich Show. Any condition, single or double axle, we will collect from you. Only condition is that it's a freebie. Please contact the office by email or phone with your information and details.
