Now in its 50th year, the Wandin-Silvan Field Days will again provide an opportunity for exhibitors to present a diverse range of horticultural, agricultural and lifestyle products and services – as well as information and demonstrations – directly to patrons.

Strategically located in the heart of the renowned and beautiful Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges region of Victoria, the Wandin-Silvan Field Days are held at the picturesque Wandin East Recreation Reserve, with participants and exhibitors from all parts of Australia.

Wandin-Silvan Field Days president, William Anker said, “50 years is an amazing achievement and a tribute to all of those involved for ensuring the continuation of this popular and important local community event.

“This year we will once again feature exhibitions ranging from farm machinery, light industrial equipment, motor vehicles and motorbikes, irrigation equipment and water tanks to information on the latest pest and weed control, fertilisers and chemicals.

“Demonstrations and displays of a wide variety of new equipment, such as chainsaws, ride-on mowers and pruning techniques will be available. Information on the packaging, transporting and labelling of fruit will also be available. Motor vehicles and 4WDs will be well represented, with many exhibitors featuring relevant products.”

With the continued support of so many, the 50th Wandin-Silvan Field Days promises to be another great success. The event will be held on Friday, October 11, 8:30am to 5pm and Saturday, October 12, 8:30am to 4pm at the Wandin East Recreation Reserve. Go to www.wandinsilvanfielddays.com.au for more information.
