Kyogle Show
Kyogle Campdraft & Rodeo

Kyogle Campdraft

Kyogle campdrafting has been running successfully for over 80 years!  The unique Australian sport is a popular event for our town boasting five Gold Cup winners within our region.

Drought is one of our biggest challenges when running a regular event.  With thanks to our local cattle donors and hard working volunteers running our back yards and producing such an amazing event we are lucky to have such great support!

The majority of our competitors are from the Northern Rivers and South-East Queensland.

We have our first 3-day event in many years held on May 15th, 16th & 17th - more details coming soon! (POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19)

KB O'REILLY MEMORIAL CAMPDRAFT

A tribute to KB - The KB Memorial Novice Campdraft.  This event has been running since 2012, the major trophy is donated by KB's family - it is a miniature version of a grandfather clock.  KB was responsible for organising all the cattle for the drafts for over 50 years along with his backyard man Bill Stanfield.  He would organise cattle donors, pick the cattle up and walk them into Kyogle.  He would come through Geneva and in from Fawcetts Plain past the houses and onto the showgrounds.  After the campdraft was over, he would deliver all the cattle back home.

BILL STANFIELD MEMORIAL SHIRE CAMPDRAFT

A tribute to a long standing committee man.  The Bill Stanfield Memorial Shire Campdraft will be run in conjunction with our Maiden campdraft, commencing this year and will become an annual event.
Bill worked in the backyards of our campdraft for over 50 years, he worked alongside KB O'Reilly and many other cattle donors in putting the cattle together for the campdraft, he also supplied cattle of his own.
Bill's nickname was 'Boxer' he was very well liked and appreciated amongst the backyard men.  He would also assist Wiangaree in the backyards during their campdraft.
He was made a life member of The Kyogle PA & H Show Society for his years of service, the show society would like to thank the Bill Stanfield family for their ongoing support towards this campdraft event.
