ACE Radio Wimmera Business Awards – Community Service Impact Award WINNER, Horsham Agricultural Society!


Horsham Agricultural Society Inc is a not-for-profit organisation with its office located in the Maydale Pavilion at ‘Maydale Reserve’ at the Horsham Showgrounds.

Situated in the heart of Horsham overlooking the Wimmera River, this precinct of 19 hectares is shared between Crown land and the Horsham Ag Society which owns almost half.

As an events centre, it is the only privately owned facility which can host weddings, exhibitions, the annual agricultural show, festivals and so much more in the centre of town.

Opportunities to camp under a canopy of stars in the heart of Horsham at special events and festivals is a jewel in not just the society’s crown but the city’s.


With up to four events a week sometimes, this is a busy precinct and when we’re not here, the facility is locked.  Visitors to the grounds are welcome to enjoy the Maydale Social Garden.  If we’re not here, please phone ahead on 0400 425 254.  Our toilets are not for general public use and the nearest serviced toilets are at 20A O’Callaghan Parade.

If you’re travelling with horses who need resting, a $10 facility fee is required which includes use of toilets, access to water and straw pit to clean floats.

The office of the Horsham Ag Society is  in Maydale Pavilion which is accessed via 22 McBryde Street entrance.  The Maydale Reserve is open Tuesdays – Thursday 8am – 5pm and Fridays from 9am – 1pm.  These hours may vary, so we recommend you phone first! 

The vintage stables and other historical buildings, including The Cattle Shed provide a unique backdrop for wedding ceremonies and receptions.  The land on which these buildings are settled is known as Maydale Reserve and they overlook the picturesque Wimmera River.  

The grounds are hired out for swap meets, expos, outdoor movies, BBQ cooking competitions and more. Camping facilities are available for people attending our events and festivals as well as those travelling through with horses who need overnight stabling.

The Maydale Reserve is maintained by volunteers and several staff.  A strong relationship between the St Brigid’s College and the Society enables us to support secondary college Year 11 and 12 students by providing assistance with their community projects and opportunities for work experience.  We also enjoy strong partnerships with job agencies with Work for the Dole projects and AXIS Employment for other job seekers. 

For more information about hiring venues at Maydale Reserve etc, please go to our USER GROUPS & HIRING PAGE.
