The Show

The Newcastle Show returned in 2021, powered by Greater Bank.

We were proud to celebrate all that Newcastle & The Hunter has to offer in a safe yet exciting environment.


Established more than 120 years ago, The Show is a long-standing tradition, not only for Novocastrians but many more people based across regional NSW, and in 2021 will continue to provide a platform to celebrate the rich and diverse concepts and skills which exist across the Hunter.

Rich in history, but new in approach, The Show offers something for everyone with a centre ring show with livestock parades, show jumping and other various attractions such as fireworks; an agriculture pavilion with displays and judging of livestock and produce; commercial stands and exhibits; an exhibition centre hosting many exhibits; show bag and sideshow alley with carnival rides, games and shopping.

As a proud supporter of the places we call home, Greater Bank is proud to support this event, which has deep community and cultural connections and continues to provide a source of entertainment, education and pride for the community.

We’re giving away 6,000 trees!

To celebrate our 75th birthday and our commitment to plant 75,000 trees throughout the areas we call home, we’ll be giving away 6,000 trees during The Show! Come to our Greater Bank Planting Workshop and learn about how to care for your tree before planting it in your own container to take home with you.
