This year the Perth Show was held for the first time at Belmont Racecourse and overall it was a successful show.

One of the interesting factors from the Adelaide show was the traveller indicating that this year they were going to return to doi ng the longer trips, Bill Pycroft said.

This time last year petrol prices were starting to escalate and this deterred many from considering any type of lengthy trip. This year, petrol wasn't an issue at either show. People indicated that they would be hitting the road once Easter was out of the way, Bill Pycroft said.
