“The Present time seems inopportune, and, owing to the wave of depression, today’s difficulties overshadow yesterday’s triumphs and obscure the bright visions of tomorrow. What better advertisement for our district than the fact that Bingara can hold its first show, and what is more, show the world that Bingara and its people will meet their troubles in the same manner that their forebears overcame their difficulties.”
Written by H. Gordon Munro for the first Show program.

 

These words still ring true today as many things still trouble our community, not least the ongoing drought. But, we aspire to continue to meet those difficulties and challenges head on, as past Show Societies have done. Working together as a community has meant that we are able to keep the proud tradition of the Bingara Show Society alive. 

 

H.Gordon MunroThe Bingara Show was founded in April 1930 when a meeting was called to form a committee.

The first general meeting was held in August 1930 where H. Gordon Munro was elected President, a position that he would hold for the next 25 years.

The first Bingara show was held in March 1931, and was a great success. Since then the show has had to survive through the great depression, World War ll, many droughts and financial situations that have seen the show go from a three day, to a two day and when things got tough a one day show. Presently it is back to three days, including the Campdraft on the Friday.

The past 84 years has seen a number of Presidents, each doing a wonderful job to keep it going and adding their own interests and ambitions to the show.

The show is in its 82nd year and is still going strong, however there has been many changes.  The Bingara showground in particular has undergone a remarkable transformation.  2008 saw a massive overhaul of the show grounds as a result of the Campervan and Motorhome rally which was held there in October. 

Additional power was required to supply the 3,ooo campers who stayed for over a week and as a thank you for the wonderful facilities additional buildings were constructed and upgraded by the caravaners.  The showground is now renowned state wide and boasts some of the best facilities in rural Australia.
