Admission is just $5 and everyone is welcome to attend. More details? Phone the Gallery on (07) 4168-5926. Note: After tonight's opening the exhibition will remain on show from 10:00am to 4:00pm daily until the end of the month.

Ever wanted to be a Miss Showgirl or a Rural Ambassador for your local Show Society? These exciting competitions are run every year at nearly all the South Burnett's agricultural shows and they not only offer lots of fun and great prizes, but also the chance to compete right up to national level, make new friends and develop your interpersonal skills. A free information session about them will be held from 5:30pm to 6:45pm this afternoon at Nutrien Ag Solutions at 12 Macalister Street in Murgon (just past Murgon Showgrounds) for people who'd like to compete at this year's Goomeri, Proston, Murgon or Wondai Shows (a second session will be held in Nanango next Friday for people living in Kingaroy, Nanango or Blackbutt who'd like to be part of those town's shows). Both women and men are welcome, and you can obtain more details by phoning Claire-Marie on 0468-371-436.
