Reserved seating is limited and will close in 2 weeks time approx 6 February. You can come and go to your seat its yours all night.

There are free seats on the ground in the arena these are not reserved. Gates open at 3.00pm and its wise to grab some seats at this time.

Festival officially opens at 4.00pm and professional rodeo opens from 6.00pm however between 4 and 6pm there will be plenty of activities in the arena.

I have been told by the organisers that the best position for great photography at the arena is on the fence line we are allowed to stand and roam around.

MEETING POINT AND TIME - I will be there approx 2.45pm and at 3.00pm we will make our way in to the free seating area. If you are late come find us in this area.

However once activities start I am sure we will all be roaming around photographing.

Any further queries please call Russell on 0418-326-439 or email me on

From ECC club premises to Whittlesea distance is 57 klms about 1 hour drive.
