“The region owes much to the majestic Clydesdales, which played a key role in establishing the Scenic Rim’s incredible agricultural base,” emphasized Rick Stanfield, Organising Sub-Committee Chair. “Preserving and celebrating the 130-year history of these gentle giants has made the Scenic Rim Clydesdale Spectacular one of Queensland’s most significant events.”
The Clydesdale competition will be held in the main arena, showcasing the full schedule of events. Attendees will have the chance to witness rare trades such as harness making, blacksmithing, wheelwrights, horse-drawn demonstrations, driving displays, whip plaiting, and more. The program also features highlights like the Queensland Whip Cracking Championships, World Billy Boiling Championships, wood chopping, working dog displays, Friesian Horse Troupe performances, artisan coopering, and bush poetry.
In homage to the Scottish descendants who settled in the region and introduced Clydesdales, the event will include a stirring massing of Pipes and Drums, Calling of the Clans, the Clydesdale and Clan class, and traditional Scottish caber tossing. Attendees are encouraged to embrace the Scottish spirit by wearing clan kilts and indulging in haggis burgers and drinks from the whisky bar.
