Region on show
THE Mundubbera show was embraced not only by locals but by fans further afield.
Interest from outside the district arrived on Saturday, with ABC Radio broadcasting from the grounds.
Gate numbers were up about 400 on last year.
Gayle Pott said the Mundubbera Show Society was happy with this year’s show and said it was extremely well supported.
“The spirit of it was alive for all to see,” Mrs Pott said. “You didn’t have to go far to hear everyone saying how great it was.”
Miss Showgirl Megan Vicary, 22, said she had not missed a show.
“We need to look after our farmers, as we need to eat; otherwise I definitely see a bright future for rural Australia,” she said.
