2018 Show: Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th June 2018 - 10am until 5pm each day. Last entry at 3.30pm.
The Model Show returns on the 10th and 11th June 2017 for its fifth year of active displays on the lake, on the ground and in the air! With display areas exhibiting boats, planes, helicopters, quads, drones, trains, cars, kites and much more with have-a-go areas, model traders, bring and buy, food and drink plus other activities too! A great day out in beautiful surroundings.
There were five display fields for the 2016 show. The main show area around the Ribbon Lake will be primarily boats, trains and tanks. Many active displays took place in this area. There was also refreshments available in this field including hog roast, BBQ, hot and cold drinks and ice creams. The second field was RC cars where there were displays and races taking place throughout the day. The third field was quads and drones which were racing up and down the field and around the stream that runs through that area. At the top of the hill the fourth field, above Betty's Lake, was displaying scale model helicopters and planes and the fifth field was displaying all manner of kites including some impressive novelties.
