This display was originally formed to combat a general misunderstanding of snakes and other reptiles in the community. They promote public awareness of reptiles – especially snakes and related first aid treatments.
DISTINCTIVE MELBOURNE CARRIAGES
Distinctive Melbourne Carriages is a long established family business offering you expert and personalised service.
They have been giving FREE Stage Coach rides at the Whittlesea Show for many years.
Starting near the Cattle Pavilion be sure to take a trip back in time and take a ride like a pioneer.
Of course there will be plenty of animals on show – alpacas, sheep, cattle and horses, and don’t forget to visit the Animal Nursery where the kids can get up close and personal with the baby animals. See milking displayed, pet the goats, rabbits and calves. This really is the place where the “City meets the Country”.
This year our members have been rebuilding the Murphy Engines and should have 2 of the 3 operational for our show. Led by Ian Burke the mobile Gardener Engine is well under way for restoration. Works on the “Black Saturday “burnt Labor Engine are nearing completion.
A visit to the Vintage Pavilion to sample the history of agriculture in the Whittlesea region is a must. See and hear running engines, feel the warmth of the Blacksmith shop. Both young and old will be fascinated by the Lego display. Work some of the interactive displays, watch demonstrations of sheep shearing, hay making and wool spinning. With tractors, cars and trucks on display it will be a delight for all to see.
Commencing at 10:30am and action every 15 minutes, make sure you get to the Woodchop arena and “see the chips fly” as some of Australia’s top axemen go head to head in traditional Woodchop and Hot Saw races.
