There will be a jumping castle, face painting and also a choir to give you that authentic Christmas feeling! And what’s Christmas without Mulled Wine? We have that too!

So come along and browse the markets, have some dinner from one of the many food vans and enjoy the ambiance around a warm fire.

A huge, huge thank you to all those who donated to the restoration project. Your support will be recognised throuh an honour board that will display your name proudly in the annex of the Hall.

Long Lunch Saturday 25th August

The Brookfield Long Lunch has sold out! Thank you to all those who have purchased tickets The Long Lunch not only raises funds for maintenance works on our Showgrounds but this year it’s also proudly supporting the Burrumbuttock Hayrunners.

So the question is, how many trucks can we get on the road?

Founded by truckie Brendan “Bumpa” Farrell in 2014 the Burrumbuttock Hayrunners are an amazing group of people who transport donated hay to drought affected farmers in Australia. As of March this year a whopping 66% of Queensland’s land area was declared as drought affected. We can help “keep the dream alive” for our Aussie Farmers by making a table donation to the Burrumbuttock Hay Runners.
Bumpa and his truckie mates have completed 11 successful hay runs to help drought affected farmers in Queensland and New South Wales. All trucks, hay, machinery, driving time, harvest time and the actual hay itself is donated – the 2016 run involved 258 trucks, $6 million worth of hay delivered to 800 farmers feeding 300,000 beasts. It costs approximately $2,000 in fuel for a truck do to ‘a run’ so we are aiming to get as many trucks on the road as we can.
