Mullumbimby’s 108 th Show was a huge success in spite of the  less than clement weather.

Hundreds enjoyed last weekend’s action filled Show. Trotters thrilled, flying motorcyclists dropped jaws, the fireworks were answered by lightning. Pies were devoured, chooks were admired, a show girl was crowned, cakes were judged, baby animals were petted, snakes fascinated and repelled at the same time. Coster got dirty. Horses cleared hurdles and cattle lowed.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. I’m so happy the Mullum Show was a success and enjoyed by many. What I’m not happy about is the fireworks which once again terrified my animals, as I live nearby. Last year we lost 2 dogs for a number of hours and horses were frantically galloping in the dark with no safe place to get away from the fireworks which were exploding above their heads. This year my donkey and goat broke out of their paddock and in the course of trying to run to safety, got caught in a barbed wire fence. Fortunately no great damage this time but it begs the question, why do we need fireworks? They scare both animals and humans and are a danger as we often have total fire ban at this time of year. What about having a laser light show?
