The Committee for the Great Southern Field Days regrets to announce that the two day event scheduled for April 2018 will be postponed until next year.

We would like to thank exhibitors and providers for their ongoing support and commitment to the Great Southern Field Days, and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience.
