With a 55 year history the Dowerin GWN7 Machinery Field Days is one of Australia’s largest and most impressive annual agricultural expos. From tractors to cheese, water tanks to stud rams, fencing products to fine wines, the Dowerin GWN7 Machinery Field Days has it all! Whether you are looking to build a house, upgrade your farming machinery, invest your money, increase your stock or decorate your family home, this event is your one stop shop!
As a not-for-profit community owned and operated event, income generated is injected back into Dowerin and surrounding towns, contributing to the success and survival of the region. Our event is about uniting people from all over regional Australia, highlighting the sense of community and the values our little towns represent and showcasing the best of the agricultural industry. From the latest in machinery, technology, livestock, homewares and vintage machinery to showcasing the beauty in the bush through our art and photography exhibition, with some of Western Australia’s best artists and story tellers displaying their work. It’s a diverse event, with something for everyone AND we would love for you to be a part of it all.
The Dowerin Field Days directly targets attendees from agricultural regions, attracting over 25,000 visitors each year. Recent studies have shown that over 70% of all attendees come from rural and regional areas and most own or run an agricultural related business. Around 7000 broad acre farmers attend the event each year and over half of all visitors stated their reason for attending was a strong interest in agricultural products and services.
But in recognition of the extraordinary efforts of the Dowerin Community in establishing and maintaining the unique event, the Committee has also involved themselves in promoting the event beyond an agricultural context, to acknowledge its importance to rural tourism. As a result the Field Days has won several tourism awards at a state and national level. After taking our the WA award for “Significant Local Festivals and Special Events in 1995, the event went on to win the National award in the same category and then proceeded to be the winner of the category again in 1996 and 1997. In 1998 the Dowerin Field Days was inducted into the Sir David Brand Tourism Awards Hall of Fame.
