Gatton Heavy Horse Field Days

Gatton, Lockyer Valley Area

5 – 6 May 2018 - 

While the Field Days is an important event for breeders, the weekend is mainly dedicated to the working of these magnificent animals making it the perfect 'show-piece' for the general public.

Long regarded as the largest and most prestigious heavy horse event in Australia, spectators can see some of the best in all areas of competition - from the plough ring to the beautifully restored horse-drawn vehicles or the skill of manoeuvring a log through a tight obstacle course.

Outside the main arena is a continuous programme of displays and demonstrations. The farriers sweat it out in a hot-shoeing competition, learn more about the individual breeds or watch the marvellous sight of a Clydesdale doing dressage - and that's just for starters! And in between all this, browse the stalls and find something special to take away with you or settle down in the grand stand with a coffee and a burger (or anything else from the extensive range of food and beverages on offer) and watch these wonderful horses do what they do best.

Maryborough tells the tales of a captivating colonial past. Stories of loss, triumph and spirit spread throughout the town in its heritage buildings, striking public art, statues and memorials. A short stroll through heritage-listed Queens Park leads to Cheery Tree Lane and a statue of Mary Poppins perched beside the 135-year-old bank building where her creator, Pamela Lyndon Travers, was born in 1889.
