Farming and lifestyle focussed activities for the whole family to enjoy are key to the appeal of the Agrotrend field days, being held in the Bundaberg Recreational Precinct on Friday 8th  and Saturday 9th April 2022.

” whether you’re keen to check out and invest in the latest farming technologies or you are after a great family afternoon out, Agrotrend 2022 will deliver.”

Ainsley Gatley, Agrotrend event manager

Join us for two days of farming and lifestyle focussed activities, demonstrations and displays both outside and in the main pavilion.  

Other exciting events and exhibits organised for the field days include the Agrotrend Strongman Competition and Tractor Pull, the Australasian Alpaca Association Show, the Ping Pong Ball Drop and much more.

The Bundaberg Region is home to a large and productive region of southern Queensland. The primary economic driver of the commercial hubs of Bundaberg, Childers and Gin Gin is agriculture and horticulture making Agrotrend Bundaberg the ideal location for a field day event.

The Club is interested and passionate about preserving and promoting the interest of old machinery within the community and the upcoming rally will be sure to entertain both children and the young at heart that just may remember what life before electricity and computerisation was all about.

Support them as they fundraise to restore a piece of local history in a 1970 TOFT Robot Sugar Cane Harvester which will then be on a permanent display within our community.

Australian Alpaca Association 2022 Show

Alpacas produce luxurious fleece that can be processed into a range of different products. From socks to suits, Doona’s to carpet. These eco-friendly animals are suited to small lifestyle blocks as well as large broad-acre farms. Their soft padded feet, communal dung piles, low water intake and gentle grazing nature make them very low impact on the land.

Our members offer friendly, personalised service to prospective alpaca owners whether you are looking for pets, lawn mowers, herd guards or breeding stock. Alpaca owners are passionate about their animals and have a wealth of information to share. Giving you an insight into all their needs including husbandry, breeding and fencing requirements. Offering you the opportunity to inspect hundreds of alpaca’s on-farm. Our members also provide ongoing management support and agistment in some areas.
