“We regret to inform you that the 2021 South West Conveyancing Camperdown Show has been cancelled due to the current Covid-19 pandemic once again.

The first stock show was held in 1870 on vacant land that the railway line was soon to be built on. While the first show on the present site located at the foot of the picturesque Mount Leura & Mount Sugar Loaf Reserves was held in October 1881.
The Camperdown P & A Society has a long history of community involvement and service; today the grounds are home to six community groups and are a valued resource for the community. It was very fortunate that the local forefathers had the vision to acquire the land to showcase agriculture.
The P & A Society is one of only a few societies that privately own their grounds, Our committee of 100% volunteers is planning & working towards showcasing our local event to the wider community with all proceeds reinvested to improve the showgrounds & its facilities, to benefit the local community.
Your valued annual membership & sponsorship support the showgrounds development.
