The Wimmera Machinery Field Days has a long and proud history of being able to offer an alternative and something different to visitors who may be looking for more than the latest machine or agricultural innovation at our event.
In 1963 a partnership was formed with the regional CWA who offered ‘something for the farmers wives’ which then led to development of the Field Days Ladies Committee and resulted in 1978 with the construction of one of Australia’s first purpose built and at the time one of Australia’s largest ‘Ladies Pavilions’ at a Field Day. Transforming into the General Interest Committee saw the Wimmera Field Days launch our long running Farm Sculpture competition as well as Australia’s first ‘Farm Art’ design competition.
The modern era has seen the transformation of this area into the Country Lifestyle Precinct that it is today. We can offer a genuine opportunity for all visitors to embrace our Field Days that really has ‘something for everyone’. The increasingly popular ‘Country Gourmet Pavilion’ was launched in 2009 and it also combines the Field Days Auditorium home to our Celebrity Chefs as well as the very popular Fashion Parades each year.
