This annual show celebrates its 105th year in 2011 and from the moment you enter the gates there will be no shortage of fun and entertainment.
All the favourites will be there including sideshow alley, showbags, animal competitions, entertainment, equestrian events, wood chopping, homecrafts, fireworks and of course Southport State High School’s Animal Nursery.
Our school’s Animal Nursery is always one of the show’s most popular attractions where people of all ages can get up close to a range of cute baby animals including lambs, kids, calves, chicks, ducklings, piglets and guinea pigs. Our larger farm animals including cattle will also be displayed along with some unusual animals like the llamas which we are lucky enough to be able to exhibit for Spitfire Park from the Sunshine Coast. This event is a wonderful opportunity for our Agriculture students to publicly showcase their talents and the school’s unique farm facility to the Gold Coast community. So when you are at this year’s Goldsteins Bakery Gold Coast Show make sure that you visit our Animal Nursery which will be located in the Dairy Farmers Animal Pavilion (adjacent to the Rodeo).
