The fun countdown is on with only a week to go until the 102nd Mt Gravatt Show at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds! The show that reportedly “attracts thousands each year” for just one weekend will be on again this 29th and 30th of July. With competitions, awards, live shows, crafts, fireworks, animal nursery, and many more, it will be a vibrant two-day event for everybody.

More Than a Century of Iconic Tradition

Thousands are expected to come each year at Mt Gravatt’s iconic venue to celebrate this “long-standing tradition” in Brisbane’s southeast district. Since 1918, the Mt Gravatt Show has been livening up the suburb and showcasing the community spirit. The upcoming 102nd show is touted as something that will be bigger, livelier, and cooler.


Saturday highlights include the cattle competition at 9:00 a.m., woodchop competition (10:00 a.m.), Warsong Larp display (5:00 p.m.), educational fireworks display (7:50 p.m.), and monster fireworks (8:00 p.m.). Live evening performances for the day will be brought to you by the Bayside Brass Band at 5:40 p.m., Friesian Performance Troupe (6:20 p.m.), Agro and Ranger Stacey (6:30 p.m.), and Late for Woodstock (7:30 p.m.).

The Sunday highlight consists of the Big Rig Truck Show at 10:30 a.m. This year’s Mt Gravatt Show promises to bring you “Trucking Spectacular” with awesome big rigs on centre stage! Watch the exciting showdown of the mates who “Keep Australia Moving” as they compete for the “Rig of the Show” title. Six classes are said to be in the competition. The rigs range from generation masterpieces to today’s modern designs. This highlight purportedly never fails to “attract a huge crowd” each year. Must. Not. Miss!

Meanwhile, check out the other worthwhile highlights of the upcoming event, too! See the bigger and improved animal nursery where you can help bottle-feed or walk baby animals. Expect to see alpacas, cattle, dogs (working and pedigree), goats, horses, sheep, and much more. There will also be competitions between local artists on cake decorating, quilting, painting, photography, and other crafts. If you’re feeling adventurous, on the other hand, you can go for the rides instead. The choice is yours! It’s going to be an affordably fun day out for the whole family.
