Challenge the Kids

Have children under 10 years? Keep them motivated during the day by having them join in Westech Field Days’ Kids Challenge. The challenge, in the style of a scavenger hunt, will have the kids spotting special markers throughout the grounds as they endeavour to win the Kids Challenge cash prize!

Bring the whole family along to the Westech Twilight Bar on Tuesday night for a fun filled evening of food and dancing – located at the Barcaldine Saleyards.

Reptile Education

Knowing how to spot poisonous snakes and spiders has the potential to save lives in the bush. Join Creepy Crawlies at site H7 (next to the show pit) and ensure the whole family knows how to handle a slippery situation. The special Reptile Education Sessions will be running both days at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm.
