  1. First time ever that I stopped at the auction ring and followed the auction proceedings. Such a pleasant experience after 32 years in the NT to be immersed in its traditional pastoral industry.
    I enjoyed it very much. Our cattle is just beautiful and well looked after.
    I also discovered the many grasses growing in the paddocks and their relative nutritional values.
    The Show is not only the merry-go-round and the jams and cakes.
    It is a wonderful reflection of life in The Centre. One of the only occasions where the community enjoys the togetherness. Thank you to the Alice Springs Show Society and the organisers.
