Zone 3 Final - The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl Competition
For those of you that follow The Land Sydney Royal Showgirl Competition, you would be aware that February has been a busy month on the Showgirl calendar.
This weekend, Zone 3 hosted their Zone Final - which had very special significance for me as this was the zone I represented last year at the State Final.
Zone 3 extends from the Southern Tablelands down to the Snowy Mountains and Far South Coast and this year the Zone Final was hosted by Bega.
Bega put on a great event with the Zone Final dinner held in the Grand Pavilion at the Showground. This building is the largest of its kind in Southern NSW - and was built over 100 years ago!
Congratulations to all 12 of the Zone Finalists - you did a wonderful job representing your local communities and I hope you gained alot from your showgirl experience.

The Bega Valley is a gorgeous corner of NSW and is well renowned for its "Bega Cheese" and its dairy industry.
Bega is also the hometown of one of the 2012 Young Farming Champions in the Art4Agriculture program - Tom Pearce put together this video to share his experience in the Australian Dairy Industry and inspire a new generation to consider the opportunities that await in Australian Agriculture.
I think this is a great video - which both showcases the Bega Valley & also encourages young people to think about the opportunities and experiences that getting involved with the Australian Dairy industry can offer. (Thanks Tom for sharing this video.)
Tom was also kind enough to take a few showgirls on a tour of a dairy farm while they were in town for the Zone Final! Thanks Tom, Warwick Farms & the Bega Show Society for all your wonderful country hospitality!
