- Warrnambool Showgrounds
In 2018 the committee sat down over a weekend to develop our Vision and Mission for the Warrnambool Agricultural Society Inc. Here is what we have come up with:
On 17th May 1853 a group of farmers and businessmen from the area around Warrnambool and Port Fairy met at The Travellers’ Rest Inn at Woodford to form the Villiers and Heytesbury Agricultural Association. Although the association split into separate Port Fairy and Warrnambool agricultural societies in the early 1860s and then changed its name to the Warrnambool Agricultural and Pastoral Society in 1910 and to the Warrnambool Agricultural Society in 1911, it has a continuous history since its formation.
