The CMCA event will also have a significant economic benefit to our region, attracting many visitors from across Australia.

In preparation for this, Gympie Regional Council will now start to hold briefings with local business and community groups, to assist them in their preparations, and prepare them for the influx of visitors.

On behalf of Council I would like to thank the Gympie Show Society and the Gympie Turf Club for working closely with us to make this event happen.”
