The Dowerin GWN7 Machinery Field Days is an agricultural expo located in the Central Wheatbelt of Western Australia. The event has continually expanded over the past 52 years to become the largest and most successful event of its kind in the state. With a strong reputation, which is widely recognised throughout Australia, the Dowerin Field Days are classed as being among the three largest agricultural machinery events in the country.
The small Wheatbelt community swells from a population of a few hundred to over 25,500 throughout the two days in August. The number of exhibitors continues to grow each year and reached a historic 770 in 2016. Exhibitors and visitors travel from all over the state, country and increasingly overseas.
The Field Days provide businesses, offering a wide range of products and services, with an opportunity to showcase their capabilities and promote their brand to a targeted audience. Exhibitors range from manufacturers and distributors of farm machinery and allied equipment, rural services, information technology to lifestyle and leisure products and services. The Dowerin Field Days are a valuable shop window to the farming community.
The outstanding efforts from members of the community in contributing time, energy and expertise, ensures visitors and exhibitors enjoy the benefit of a well organised and professional managed event. As a not-for-profit community owned and operated event, income generated is injected back into Dowerin and surrounding towns, contributing to the success and survival of the region. The event is symbolic of rural communities helping themselves.
