The Show

The Newcastle Show returns in 2022, powered by Greater Bank.

We are proud to celebrate all that Newcastle & The Hunter has to offer in a fun and 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 2022 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.

Sparkie's Challenge

Greater Bank is excited to be launching SPARK at the Newcastle Show. SPARK is a new digital platform for children featuring activities and educational tools designed to encourage healthy savings and money management habits.

Bring the kids down to the Greater Bank marquee, located just inside the Curley Rd main entrance, to take part in Sparkie’s Challenge. Race against siblings, friends, or even Sparkie, in a series of challenges for a chance to win some great prizes.

Recharge Zone

While the kids are challenging Sparkie and each other, parents can head to the Recharge Zone for a chance to chill-out and escape the hustle and bustle of the Show. Sit back and relax in the Comfy Corner, grab some refreshments from the nearby kiosk, all while the younger ones are entertained in Sparkie’s Art Corner.

A Covid-Safe event

The Newcastle Show is a Covid-Safe event. Please refer to the Newcastle Show website for information about the health and safety measures that are being implemented at The Show.
