Districts on display

In the Department of Agriculture and Food Centenary Pavilion, the pride of regions, stretching from the Kimberley to the Great Southern, was compiled into a presentation displaying what each district is really about.

Since 1927, the district displays at the Perth Royal Show have been created to show off the local products, produce and natural resources of each district. They are assessed by 30 judges each year.

A lot of time, effort and planning goes into creating the displays and mostly it all pays off.

This year, the South West took out first place among the southern regions with its amazing apple themed display.

Sue Paterson and Dennis Fullarton, volunteers at the display, were both thrilled to have won and knew that a lot of hard work and effort had gone into making the display so great.

Followed by the South West was the Mid West in second place, Great Southern third, Eastern fourth and Central the final placegetter, though all displays were very eye-catching and interesting.

In the Northern Regions, the Goldfields display came out on top.

Keryn Deckert, a Laverton resident, agreed that the win was well-deserved and that she was proud to be on the winning team.

In second place, the Kimberley Pilbara display was just not quite up to the standard of the Goldfields' but was nevertheless well developed. In third place was the colourful Gascoyne display.
