HISTORY.

  • Since 1868, for 154 years, the Inverell Show Society has hosted the local show with a long history of community involvement.

  • The first show was held on the banks of the Macintyre River behind what is now Coles.

  • In 1873 it was moved to Kamilaroi Park which is now a sporting oval.

  • Our current location, which we have enjoyed since 1914, is the Inverell Showground which is on the Tingha Road on the edge of town.

During that history the society has had a total of 22 Presidents with the longest serving being Darrell Holder who stepped down in 2011 after a period of 21 years in the chair. Following is a list of our past Presidents:
