The Dungog Show was established in 1887 to promote and protect the agricultural and horticultural resources of our Shire.


The Dungog A&H Association is passionate about educating people of all ages about agriculture and we are revitalising Dungog Show to reflect this. Learning exhibits tell the story of agriculture to both urban and rural people. We believe it is important that locals and visitors understand the significance of agriculture to our economy and appreciate the innovation, efficiency and technology that supports it.

The Dungog Show promotes the involvement of youth in shows by holding competitions for young people and by encouraging the participation of young people in show societies and agricultural youth groups.

Youth are encouraged to participate in the livestock judging competitions culminating at the State Finals for winners in Sydney at Easter.

Established in 1887, the Dungog Agricultural & Horticultural Association was originally called the Williams River Agricultural & Horticultural Association.

The war years

The only time in the history of the Show that the 'Show didn't go On' was during the war years, 6 shows were not held.
