Fun for all
You don't have to wait until August to get your fix of showbags, rides and dagwood dogs. The Boonah Show is just one hour from Brisbane. Running between 27 and 28 May, this show is not to be missed. With fireworks, woodchopping, horses, cattle, and a demolition derby, there really is something for everyone.

Held at the Boonah show grounds, this country show is worth the drive.

There are plenty of rides and showbags to keep the youngsters and the young at heart amused.

The petting zoo is always popular with its pigs, goats and alpacas, so plan to arrive early.
