Woodchop - Cancelled in 2023

2023 Royal Canberra Show Woodchop - Cancelled

The 2023 Royal Canberra Show Woodchop will NOT take place on Saturday 25th February & Sunday 26th February 2023.

Unfortunately we have been advised that due to recet weather events such as floods and fires, this has created an situation where the cost of the wood is not sustainable for the Show to wear this year. We hope that Woodchop will return in 2024.

Previous Messaging: This is an excellent event which we are very enthusiastic to be hosting for another year.
