Roll up, it's show time!

Barwon Water’s pavilion at the Royal Geelong Show is always a hit with visitors, young and old.

This year, we’re particularly proud of our display: an interactive and engaging exhibit highlighting our ‘wild and wonderful weather’. Join our hosts El Niño and La Niña through a colourful and magical journey through the forces of nature that bring us droughts and flooding rains.

This year’s Geelong Show display features amazing original artwork by Laura Alice. 

As well as interactive displays and engaging hands-on exhibits, the pavilion features amazing floor-to-ceiling artwork by Geelong-based artist Laura Alice. Laura’s whimsical illustrations and soulful characters have brought our humble shed to life! If you thought you recognised Laura’s playful style, you may have seen some of her street art in the James Street precinct or at Little Creatures Brewery.

The Geelong Show runs from tomorrow, Thursday 13 through Sunday 16 October 2016.
