The Wimmera Machinery Field Days is an iconic three day event on the rural Australian calendar.

A regional volunteer committee has managed the nonprofit event, the Wimmera’s largest annual community gathering, since 1963.

The Field Days acts as a barometer for social, economic, agricultural prosperity and growth in the entire region and is held at Wimmera Events Centre at Longerenong near Horsham in western Victoria.

The Field Days is a showcase of the latest developments in farming practice, machinery, equipment, technology and services. The Field Days committee has maintained a long-term charter to foster innovation and development in primary production and agribusiness.
