Claremont Showgrounds

Culture of The Perth Royal Show

2005 map of Claremont Showgrounds.

The first Show was 7 November 1834. Since then it has developed steadily. Initially it was purely an agricultural show but has developed to include more economic aspects over the years.

The cultural group is concentrating on the customs and traditions of the Perth show grounds. We started out getting into two groups, 2 people searched the history of the Perth Royal Show and the other 3 searched our school's history. We visited the show grounds to check it out.

We visited our school's previous homes there. Our group made a Moerlina history timeline, surveyed the kids in our class who lived close and read about the Royal Show's history.
