This year the Wimmera Machinery Field Days welcomes Australia’s major agricultural machinery dealers and leading agribusiness companies to the region.

Welcome to everyone who is attending the 56th annual Wimmera Machinery Field Days. We consider this is Victoria’s premier broad acre event and one of the biggest and more impressive displays of farming machinery in Australia with practically every brand of large farming and broad acre agricultural machine or product currently on the market on show for three big days.

Most importantly the Wimmera Field Days acts as the first positive step to the next year of rural business for our regions primary producers and agribusiness professionals

The middle day of the Field Days is our traditional Family Day where we offer ‘family friendly’ attractions and popular ‘kids themed’ shows in our auditorium.   We consider it a great chance to introduce the next generation of Field Days patrons to our event. Bringing some fun and farm life to the Field Days this year will be George the Farmer here for the first time live on stage.  Along with this we are introducing the inaugural ‘Field Days Kids Fashion Parade’ on Wednesday which will be a lot of fun for both the kids involved and all who can catch the show.

The Field Days also means three days of socialising, relaxing and enjoying a break with friends and family. A key attraction this year will be the return of the stunt riders from Factory FMX Motocross who will be leaping over some huge O’Connors tractors and machinery each day.

We are hosting ‘Tom the Shearer’ up on the boards demonstrating his shearing skill and passion for the wool industry in the Livestock Block. A key part of the afternoon will be the return of the ‘Tractorcade’ to the Field Days with a large and impressive variety of vintage tractors and old style farm machines parading around the site each afternoon.

It is important to recognise the Field Days sponsors and supporters, regional contractors and suppliers and most importantly the local community groups schools, service and sporting clubs who all help bring this major event to life. We thank them for their support and participation.

The Wimmera Machinery Field Days is a not for profit community based organisation led by a volunteer committee. Both committee members and the Field Days staff have been working throughout the year to plan for this large scale event and we are pleased to be able to showcase the Wimmera region and agriculture at its best, here at the Wimmera Events Centre.

Enjoy the 56th annual Field Days and be sure to see and experience everything we have to offer.
