Alpaca and Poultry competitions combined for the first time

The Royal Melbourne Poultry Show and the Royal Melbourne Alpaca Show will be held on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 July 2018 at Melbourne Showgrounds, showcasing Victoria’s premier alpaca competition and one of the most prestigious fanciers’ competitions in the country.

For the first time, both competitions will be combined in the Grand Pavilion, Building 7, providing a spectacle of over 1,700 animals for visitors attending the free event.

The Alpaca fleece competition is moving back into the July show with the Alpaca competition now a colour show (rather than an age show).

Three new breeds of birds are included in this year’s poultry schedule and spectators can learn about the different breeds of birds and watch as the judges decide which one takes home the title of Best in Show.

The event is free for the public to attend, in an opportunity to get up close to and learn more about these unique animals.

Entries open soon for the Royal Melbourne Alpaca Show and Royal Melbourne Poultry Show.
