Sheep - No Competition in 2023


Unfortunately we are still in a situation where we will have no sheep competitions at the 2023 Royal Canberra Show.  However, please have a read about sheep below and we hope to have them back in 2024.

A bit about Sheep

Did you know that sheep are waterproof? A compound in their fleece called lanolin repels water and helps to keep them toasty warm in the coldest weeks of winter. If lanolin seems familiar, you might have seen it in your hand cream - it's great for dry skin.

Sheep form a large part of Australia's thriving agricultural industry. Australian farmers produce excellent wool and some of the best quality lamb in the world. You can meet fleece, meat and dual purpose sheep at the Royal Canberra Show - stop by and say hello!
