An excellent yield for Durack Ag Shows

As part of the Morrison Government’s Regional Agricultural Show Development Grants program, 6 Durack Agricultural Societies will receive more than a million dollars to renew and reinvigorate their show ground facilities. 

Federal Member for Durack, the Honourable Melissa Price, has congratulated the successful grant recipients, pleased to see the countless community volunteers who create these fantastic local events each year rewarded for their commitment. 

“Agricultural shows are the heart and soul of our regional communities.They bring and keep communities together, bridge the divide between country and city and provide a key injection into the local economy,” Ms Price said.

“I always enjoy attending as many of the local annual shows in Durack as I can, and the showcase these events provide of the hard work and innovation that goes into Durack agriculture,” Melissa Price said. 

These grants will help in numerous ways, from building a new exhibition hall at Kellerberrin to improving facilities for the disabled  at another. These grants help to upgrade show facilities, attract visitors to these important regional events, more local employment, and more purchases for local businesses.

If communities have had to cancel their events this year due to the outbreak of COVID-19, these grants will help our show societies refurbish their facilities so that when their next event rolls around they will be even more attractive to the many invaluable volunteers and show attendees.
