A couple of days after I arrived in Tasmania, Campbell Town Showgrounds was buzzing with people, horses, food stalls and ….. sheep, lots of sheep, the biggest sheep I have ever seen!
These are called Corriedales and they really are huge.
Here’s a merino lined up for judging –
The sheep pavilion must have been about 75 metres long but there were a few empty pens because the mainlanders couldn’t get on the boat to get their stock over here in time. Grey nomads strike again!
This one won’t ever feel the cold again!
And being a country show highlighting sheep and wool, some people got colourfully creative!
There is a free camp at Campbell Town called Blackburn Park which is a pretty spot right on the edge of town. There is also a dump point available. A couple of good bakeries, an ice-creamery, IGA, and coffee shops line the main street.Campbell Town is situated on the Midland Highway about 67kms south of Launceston.
