history of the showgrounds

The Pine Rivers Show is the longest running Show in the Moreton Bay Region, with the first Show run in 1891, then called the Moreton Show North Pine.

The Show Society originally started out under the name of Moreton A.H & I, changing to Pine Rivers A.H & I in 1910.

The first Show’s outdoor events were held in Alexander Wylie’s Farm Paddock (located where Wylie and Mathieson Park’s are today in Petrie). With the indoor events held in the Petrie School of Arts building.

In 1915 the first Show was run at the Lawnton Showgrounds, acquired from Walter Francis & family, where it is run today.

The first Showgrounds Hall was also built in 1915, and is still used today as the Arts & Craft building, though it has moved position on the grounds since the original build.
