Mullumbimby Show has ridden out a period of decline and reinvented itself to become one of the most popular and diverse agricultural shows in the region, blending the passions of the Mullum old guard with those of the sustainable and organic crowd.

This weekend’s 106th event was no exception, featuring locally grown produce, mini-breeds of cattle and goats, school displays, cooking, flower arranging, craft, photography, vintage motorbikes – and trucks.

One event that sets the Mullum Show aside from many other local shows is the trotting, which attracted large crowds in the main arena.
