Glenreagh Timber Festival

BRING the family for a fun day out filled with activities, entertainment and history. 

The Glenreagh Timber Festival is running for the thirteenth year to celebrate the history of the town.  

The family festival will have something for everyone to enjoy from wood chopping, sheep dog trials, whip cracking, mechanical bull riding, post splitting and historical displays.  

If you get a little peckish in between activities, find yourself some food and drinks at the outlets or browse through the 60 stalls of various items.  

There's also motorbikes, tractors, horse and carriage rides, a snake education session from Steve's Reptile World, live music and the memorabilia.   

Come along to the Recreation grounds on Bridge Street in Glenreagh and let the fun begin. 

Glenreagh Timberfestival is on today from 8.30am to 4.30pm.   Tickets are $5 for adults, $2 for children between 5-15 and free for under 5-year-olds.   Parking is free.
