The Murtoa Show has always been a gathering of locals who share a common interest in Murtoa’s past and present. Country Agricultural Shows will always fill an important role in every small town, as places to be seen and in which to participate. It is also a great family experience with plenty of activities for all: loads of rides and games to amuse all ages! A Show not to be missed!
The Stick Shed
The Nationally Heritage listed site will be open for inspection over the three days of Murtoa’s Big Weekend. This monumental structure is the largest timber-framed structure still standing in Victoria and is fundamental to Victoria and Australia’s cultural identity. It is an enduring testament to iconic Australian bush ingenuity and a symbol of the growth and strength of the Australian grains industry. Immense in size, the Stick Shed spans the length of five Olympic swimming pools and has been dubbed the ‘Cathedral of the Wimmera’.
‘Land is Family’ Fine Art Photographic Exhibition
A first at The Stick Shed, proudly launching the Fine Art Photography Exhibition titled: ‘Land is Family’.
The project, by Jenani Therone, a Fine Art Photographer, celebrates farming and farming communities with creations that challenge the presumed visual ideas of the craft – farming.
An exhibition not to be missed that continues to be on display during Murtoa’s Big Weekend.
