Bream Creek Show
A traditional country show with Tasmanian title wood chopping, hall of industry, yard dog trials, horse events, rides, ringside entertainment, draft horses, merry go round, produce for sale, craft, cooking, photography and art displays, wool displays and competition, giant pumpkin competition, working bullock teams, lolly scramble, theatre performances, and vintage machinery displays.
Bream Creek is nestled below the Ragged Tier fifty kilometers to the east of Hobart with views out over Marion Bay to Maria Island and the Tasman Peninsula. The local community is made up of farming, small industry, artisans and professionals with the closest shop a general store at Copping just three kilometers away.
Dairying, winegrowing, wool and fisheries comprise the main farming activity in the district, the good soil and high rainfall providing the lush carpet of green pasture and tree canopy which can be seen over the hills for miles around.
Bream Creek after which the area is named rises in the Weilangta Forest to the north and flows out into the ocean at Marion Bay with its sandy beach reaching in either direction as far as the eye can see.
Many of today’s Bream Creek residents are descendants of the original settlers in the district and are part of the strength that holds the community together and continues the tradition that has become the successful Bream Creek Show.
