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 (including a wobbly trailer, laser tag, bucking bull, animated dinosaur roaming, tractors, animals and a giant slide), a cooking demo using Thermomix, sheep shearing demonstrations, the official opening of Murtoa’s Big Weekend and The Booth is back again!
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’.
Visitors to the Stick Shed will be entertained on Saturday by Singing in the Stick Shed – a number of Victorian and Interstate choirs will create wonderful sounds within the majestic structure.
