Join the Sunnydale Shearing team for an hour-long look into the daily work of a shearer as we capture the humour, competitiveness, culture, hard work and social activity that happens once a year, every year at Shearing time.
Learn about drafting, crutching, pressing, sweeping, wool rolling and shearing while absorbing the sounds and smells of a shearing shed in action.

The show is conducted in an old native pine shearing shed with “grandstand “seating and lots of memorabilia.

Available to houseboat hirers, bus groups and self-drive.
