Ballarat Agricultural and Pastoral Society

The Ballarat Agricultural Show Society held its first activity on 10th July 1856. It was a ploughing match with twenty ploughmen taking part. Over 162 years later the Society is still celebrating its contribution to the community and agricultural activities.

We conduct a number of events which showcase the wide ranging agricultural nature of our community today. The Ballarat Showgrounds are also used to conduct a variety of activities by other groups. Facilities are available to hire.

Owned and operated by the Ballarat Agricultural and Pastoral Society Inc. (BAPS), the Equestrian Centre sits in a 40-acre property which will be developed to become the new Ballarat Showgrounds and Events complex.

Private, Public and Events can be booked online with our easy to use calendar.
