Clydesdales - Centenary of Royal Melbourne Show Champions

This year the Royal Melbourne Show celebrates 100 years since the first Clydesdale Champion was awarded. Visitors can be part of the celebrations with a range of activities to celebrate the milestone.

See the majestic Clydesdales up close when the blue ribbon competition moves into The Weekly Times Livestock Pavilion for the very first time! Then get up close and see these gentle giants of the horse world with a tour through the Clydesdale Pavilion, where you can meet the owners and watch these beautiful animals being prepared for judging.

To celebrate the Centenary of Royal Melbourne Show Clydesdale Champions, a Highland Parade will be held on Sunday 28 September, 12.30pm at Coca-Cola Arena. The parade will showcase all things Scottish from this year’s Royal Melbourne Show and will feature Clydesdales, the 2014 feature cattle breed Highland cattle and a Highland marching band.
