TOP 5: Weekend tips for the Bega Valley

1. 89th Annual Bega Poultry Show, Bega Showground pavilion

Open to the public both Saturday (9am-4pm) and Sunday (9am-1pm), the Bega District Poultry Club is expecting over 700 entries to its 89th annual show. Get along to view the variety of poultry bred in the Bega Valley as well as from interstate, or even just to have a chat with exhibitors about caring for chickens!

Iconic rock outfit Dragon is bringing its big sounds to the Far South Coast for a special one-night only performance. Proving its longevity in the face of adversity, including the deaths of several band members, Dragon was formed in 1973 and is set to release a new album in August! Tickets are $30 presale or $35 at the door. Doors open at 8pm.

3. Bermagui Breakers v Pambula Panthers, Pambula Sporting Complex, Saturday 2.15pm

Can the Breakers back up form their recent good form against a Panthers team being touted as the season’s benchmark side? They defeated traditional powerhouse Tathra last week and only lost to Pambula by nine points in the pre-season comp. Head south to support your team and watch what should be a great game of footy.

4. Bridge to Bridge bike path

Go for a bike ride or walk along the Bega River track. A new section now links the old Bega Racecourse to the existing pathway, which meanders along all the way from the Valley Fields. The next job is to complete the link to Tarraganda.

5. Homage and From the Book exhibitions, Tanja/Wapengo
