President’s Message

The Newcastle Regional Show provides an opportunity for so many people to be actively involved.

Some people come along for the ride, some for the entertainment, some to enjoy the many and varied exhibits. Others will come to the Show to participate in the many competitions.

Some will take home trophies and prizes and everyone will take home some wonderful memories.

The Show is not one person, nor is one person the show… it’s a team effort and it’s a big team made up of dozens of volunteers working across many sections. The efforts of the volunteers coupled with the work of our small team of committed and enthusiastic staff allow the annual transformation of an empty shell of a showground into a bustling hive of activity, competitions, education, entertainment and lots of noise… good noise.  The sounds of people chatting and laughing and the sounds of cattle, horses, goats, sheep, chickens and the crack of a whip, the wood chopping, the bikes and the cars in centre ring.  The aromas of food and coffee from different cultures.  All this and so much more makes up the Newcastle Regional Show.

Thank you to everyone who contributes in any way to making the Show what it is. An iconic three day event for Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Lower Hunter regions.

A special thank you to all our sponsors, small and large. You contribute significantly to making our Show possible for the whole community to enjoy.

We hope to see you at this year’s Newcastle Regional Show.
