About 40,000 peo­ple at­tended this year’s three-day Royal Hobart Show, hit­ting the lower end of the Royal Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety of Tas­ma­nia’s tar­get.

The busiest day was the Thurs­day, with more than 21,000 peo­ple through the gates.

Fri­day night was also busy but Satur­day’s weather, in­clud­ing fore­cast high winds, seemed to keep peo­ple away, with only 5000 at­tend­ing.

RAST’s Scott Gadd said the new three-day for­mat had proved suc­cess­ful.
