The Sheep Shearing and Wool Handling competitions are staged in the Sheep Shearing and Wool Pavilion during the IGA Perth Royal Show. Both competitions happen in the northern part of the pavilion and spectator seating is available to accommodate the large crowds that are drawn to watch.
Also located in the Sheep Shearing and Wool Pavilion is the Sheep Show. Combined with the shearing activities this ensures the pavilion is always busy with thousands of agriculturalists industry representatives and curious show goers.
The Sheep Shearing and Wool Handling competitions traditionally attract a high standard of entrants.
The high calibre of shearers provides a strong and fierce competition during the Show which attracts extensive publicity. There are sheep shearing demonstrations all week.
