“This is great news for our community and should encourage people to get out and enjoy our wonderful annual show, which has always been a crowd favourite and now back up and running after a few difficult years,” Eurobodalla Shire Council’s community recovery officer Linda Wilton said.

The show’s many attractions include livestock judging, sideshow alley, a motorcycle gymkhana and a dog high jump.

“This is an opportunity for the community to get up to date with personal and community preparedness around emergencies and natural disasters,” Ms Wilton said.

“We’ll have a range of services and providers on site with information, demonstrations and activities.

“For example, the new Fire Danger Rating system, bushfire survival plans, flood awareness and how to get involved in community-led resilience.”
