John Marchetti Shed

The John Marchetti Shed is located at the North East end of the showgrounds near the cattle exhibits.

There are many and varied attractions and exhibits located in and around this facility.  The shed was given a face lift in 2021 with the addition of a colourful Mural created by talented Mural Artist Jerome Davenport.  The Society wishes to thank all of the people from the farming community who donated funds towards this creative project.

Visit the Marchetti Shed to view the following attractions:

The Farm Shed  featuring a wealth of interactive displays and activities for all the family. See the  winners for the Banner and Intergenerational Display competitions.  You can have your photo taken on an old Massey Ferguson Tractor, view historical photos and displays or watch the spinners at work.  There are a variety of interactive games for the younger children to introduce them to life on the farm and drone footage taken of local farming practices.
