Each year the District Displays come alive with the flavours of Western Australia. From all corners of the State, ten regions each create an original display which shows off the best of agriculture and innovation. Designed and created by teams of volunteers they are a colourful celebration of human endeavour, artistic creativity, fresh produce, exhibitor competition and camaraderie.
To stroll through the District Displays in the Department Of Agriculture and Food Centenary Pavilion is to absorb the pride and effort associated with each region’s display will make you realise that the simple things in life are indeed often the best.
Stretching from the Pilbara in the State’s north, to the Great Southern, they offer a rare snapshot of Western Australia’s primary industries and is an impressive visual reminder of the contribution regional Western Australia makes to people’s lives and the economy
The District Displays began in 1927, lapsed during the war and started again in 1958. Set up originally to increase knowledge and interest in primary industries, the District Displays are an IGA Perth Royal Show draw card, attracting tens of thousands of visitors each year. Its appeal lies in an ability to tell stories about unique and rich country lives that many know little about.
