AgQuip

AgQuip
Since it started in 1973, AgQuip has provided professionals on the land with comprehensive access to the latest machinery, equipment and services available to Australian primary industry. It has developed a reputation over the last three decades as the nation's premier agri-showcase. The first AgQuip attracted 69 participants and 30,000 visitors and was held at the Gunnedah Racecourse. Rapid growth in the '70s necessitated a larger site and in 1977 the move was made to a permanent, purpose built site six kilometres west of Gunnedah.

Today, some 3,000 individual companies will be at AgQuip to interact with the 100,000 plus customers who attend. AgQuip is the largest agricultural and rural marketplace in Australia and among the biggest in the world. The giant field days are staged over three days in August in Gunnedah, New South Wales, Australia. Participating companies use the field days as a launching pad for new products and services, in the process using unique opportunities offered by AgQuip to make direct contact with their customers.

AgQuip is a great family day out, with lots to see and do. Grab a mouth-watering steak, visit the fashion stores, watch the reptile show, or get a shoe shine. With so many options for a great day out, you may to need to stay a few nights.
Gunnedah has a variety of events while AgQuip is running, such as: The Railway Hotel Billy Boiling Competition, The AgQuip Rodeo – held at the Gunnedah Showground, and the Art and Craft Exhibition – held at the Civic Centre.
