The key principles to keeping COVID safe at the Stanthorpe Showgrounds and the Stanthorpe Show are as follows: 


COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Most infected people will develop mild to moderate illness and recover without hospitalization. The symptoms of COVID-19 are very similar to the symptoms you have if you have a cold with the most common symptoms being fever, dry cough and tiredness. Less common symptoms include aches and pains, sore throat, diarrhoea, conjunctivitis, headache, loss of taste or smell a rash on skin or discolouration of fingers or toes.


If you are exhibiting any of these symptoms, please don't come to the Stanthorpe Show and seek medical advice as soon as you can.  


To comply with our COVID plan we need to have a registration system upon entry so that if an outbreak occurs, contact tracing can take place and Qld Health can get in touch with everyone who was at the show on a given day. We will use several methods to enforce this registration system. 

  • ELECTRONIC REGISTRATION - Everyone must scan this QR code for the day that you are coming to the Stanthorpe Show and complete the registration details. 

  • MANUAL REGISTRATION - At the gate upon entry you must complete a registration form and provide us with your name, contact details and answer the COVID screening questions. 


To comply with our COVID plan our system of entry needs to be as contactless as possible. 

  • NIL CONTACT ENTRY - Become a member of the Stanthorpe Agricultural Society and show your membership badge on arrival to gain entry to the Showground and the show in a contactless manner. Membership details are here.

  • MINIMAL CONTACT ENTRY (vehicles) - Remain in your vehicle as you pay gate entry fees on arrival. 

  • MINIMAL CONTACT ENTRY (pedestrians) - Maintain physical distancing as you pay gate entry fees on arrival.


To comply with our COVID plan our we are providing bottles of 80% alcohol based hand sanitiser at all showgrounds entry points and at regular points throughout the Showgrounds. Please sanitise your hands regularly during your visit to the Stanthorpe Show.


To comply with our COVID plan our we are providing signage around the Showgrounds and making announcements to remind you to maintain physical distancing of 1.5m away from people not in your usual household group. This will apply to all parts of the Stanthorpe Show including pedestrian walkways, side show alley, section exhibits, inside pavilions and seating. You are responsible for maintaining your distance from other people. 


To comply with our COVID plan our we are providing signage in all the amenity blocks on Stanthorpe Showgrounds reminding you to wash yoru hands regularly using soap and water and lathering your hand for approx. 20 seconds before rinsing. Dry using single use paper towel. 


To comply with our COVID plan our we are providing signage on all buildings that create an enclosed space, indicating the maximum capacity limit for that space.  Please comply with these maximum capacity limits so that everyone inside has the opportunity to maintain their physical distancing. 

Thank you for helping make Stanthorpe Show a COVID safe event!
