See, smell and taste the rich history of the Burdekin at the Australian Hand Cane Cutting Championships on Saturday 2 June, 2018. Competitors from across Australia vie for the title of champion hand cane cutter. Experience the dirty, back breaking work of days gone by, when sugarcane was cut by hand.

The Championships will be held from 11am – 5pm at the Home Hill Showgrounds, in Australia’s sugar capital, the Burdekin. Watch as the purpose-grown crop of sugarcane is cut by gritty and determined competitors.

Sit back and enjoy live entertainment, wander through vintage machinery from yesteryear, take part in a workshop or two, enjoy a bite to eat from one of our many food providers or have a cold drink from the bar. There is something to do for the whole family with free children’s craft and activities, an animal farm, jumping castle and mini train rides.
