Chapman Valley in full bloom for show

Last weekend marked the 67th Annual Chapman Valley Agricultural Show and what started as a chilly morning, soon turned into the perfect start to the spring season.

Big crowds rolled in to take part in the recent agricultural show and the NACC team were amongst the action too, talking project ideas and getting to know more community members in the Northern Agricultural Region.

Throughout the day more than 80 community members, small land holders and wildflower tourists stopped in to the NACC stall to make the most of our handy resources.

NACC Local NRM Officer Marieke Jansen said hearing about how much people love the Northern Agricultural Region was a highlight of the day.

“It was great to be able to talk to so many small land holders in the region, and give them information and support for management on their lifestyle blocks,” she said.

“The Chapman Valley Show is a great show for young and old community members, because there is a range of activities and something for everyone; from live stock to home grown produce and it is such a fun way to engage with the local community.”

NACC staff were available to discuss potential or current projects, land management issues, observations or just have a good old yarn, Marieke said.

Free Kalbarri carpet seedlings were available as well as handy resources such as the Threatened Flora pocket guide and copies of NACC’s Native Garden Guides.

Community members were asked what the best natural asset in the Chapman was, revealing both the stunning viewpoints from Mill’s Lookout and the Moresby Range were among the most popular natural attractions in the area.
