Celebrating the Clydesdale
June is the perfect month for a wee bit of horsing around in the Scenic Rim with the Clydesdale Spectacular. Celebrating the iconic Clydesdale horse and the Scenic Rim's rich Scottish heritage, this two-day event is packed with activities for all ages.

Held on the 17th and 18th of June 2023 at the Boonah Showgrounds, the Clydesdale Spectacular showcases the best of its breed. Grand champions of the breed will be judged, the Scottish heritage of the breed shared and the history of the breed in Australia, and in the Scenic Rim, is celebrated.

Featuring Clydesdales and Heavy Horses, working dogs, the Australian Light Horse troupe, harnessing and blacksmithing demonstrations and carriage rides, there is plenty to keep everyone entertained. The Clydesdale program includes competitions, championships and demonstrations.
