March 6, 2023

Leader of The Nationals and Federal Member for Maranoa David Littleproud has delivered a newmulti-purpose covered area for the Dalby and District Show Society.

The shed was funded in partnership with the Show Society and the former Coalition Government,which provided $63,307 in funding from the successful Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF).

“As the Federal Member for Maranoa I am proud to open a brand new shaded area that will

continue to improve the first class facilities at the showgrounds,” Mr Littleproud said.

“This shed will ensure the show and the broader community have the facilities they need anddeserve in the future. It will be used for local, state and national events, including the annualshow, school camp drafts, rodeos and the Australian stock horse sale.

“Sadly the Albanese government has scrapped the BBRF program, with local organisations nowhaving to try to source funding, but we are asking them to introduce another infrastructureprogram to help regional communities.”

The Dalby project was one of many which proved why the Coalition’s BBRF was vital for the

regions and all Australians, providing funding for small grassroots organisations to build facilitiesfor visitors to enjoy.

The Dalby and District Show Society has a strong and proud history in the region, with this yearmarking its 153rdshow.

The Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia will also host their annual rally at the

showgrounds, attracting thousands of visitors.
