The braindhcild of circuit managing director Fergus Cameron who farms in his spare time, the expo has attracted more than 100 exhibitors and speakers to date.

Organisers guarantee there will be something for everyone, whether you're looking to buy a new tractor for your property or if you're looking for solar energy options. Travel and rural lifestyle aficionados will find an array of camping, fishing, travel and outdoor gear to look at and purchase as well.

"We put this expo together to basically enlighten tree and sea changers on the 1000 ways to do things better in the country," Cameron says who, with his wife Chris, runs 150 breeding cows with calves on their farm.

He adds the event is a good opportunity for those new to country life to find out everything they need to know about rural living, property maintenance, farming etc.

The Small Farm Expo will be housed in the 2000 square metre pavilion usually used for motorsport expos with external sites featuring agricultural animal displays.   

A dedicated rough terrain area will allow for quad bikes, ag bikes and 4WD vehicles to be put through their paces while a working farm area will showcase the latest farm machinery, tractors, slashers and ride-on mowers.
