Wagin Woolarama

Wagin Woolarama came into being in 1972 on the back of the Merino and wool industry in the area. Primarily it is an opportunity to exhibit their sheep, wool and innovations in the wool industry, including fashion, to the expected 25,000 people who attend over the two days.

Sheep are judged, fleeces are exhibited, winning sashes proudly displayed and shearing is demonstrated.

Fashions parades attract a large crowd.

And what else would you have for lunch but lamb shanks.

Woolarama is run by the Wagin Agricultural Society and also includes cattle and poultry judging.

The machinery just keeps getting larger and no Australian show is complete without the hot utes.

The 10th Light Horse – Bunbury Troop were parading the ground. Their troop has members with previous armed force experience.

There were of course all the other activities associated with agricultural show days including side shows and general interest stalls.

But for me, it is all about the livestock.

    It is great to see that the great Merino breed – of Spanish origin – is still highly regarded in Australia. The finest wool in the world survives in the era of artificial and synthetic fibres. And nothing like wearing a Merino wool knit… Thank you for sharing this event with us.
