Covid Information


The Wandoan Show Society Inc Management Committee is committed to keeping everyone safe during the show activities, and we ask everyone attending to help out where even they can. We are all personally responsible to observe Queensland Health directives current at the time of the show.



COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Most infected people will develop mild to moderate illness and recover without hospitalization. The symptoms of COVID-19 are very similar to the symptoms you have if you have a cold with the most common symptoms being fever, dry cough and tiredness. Less common symptoms include aches and pains, sore throat, diarrhoea, conjunctivitis, headache, loss of taste or smell a rash on skin or discolouration of fingers or toes.

If you are exhibiting any of these symptoms, please don't come to the Wandoan Show and seek medical advice as soon as you can.


To comply with our COVID Safe Event Checklist we need to have a registration system upon entry so that if an outbreak occurs, contact tracing can take place and Queensland Health can get in touch with everyone who was at the show on a given day. We will use several methods to enforce this registration system.

ELECTRONIC REGISTRATION - Everyone must scan the Check in Qld QR code each day that you are coming to the Wandoan Showgrounds and the Wandoan Show and complete the registration details.

MANUAL REGISTRATION - if you don't have a device that will enable you to undergo electronic registration, then at the gate upon entry you must complete a registration form and provide us with your name, contact details and answer the COVID screening questions.


To comply with our COVID checklist, our system of entry needs to be as contactless as possible.

​NIL CONTACT ENTRY - Become a member of the Wandoan Show Society Inc and show your membership ticket on arrival to gain entry to the Showground and the show in a contactless manner. Membership details are HERE. At this point you can also show your evidence that you have scanned the QR code.

> ​​MINIMAL CONTACT ENTRY (vehicles) - Remain in your vehicle as you pay gate entry fees on arrival.

> ​MINIMAL CONTACT ENTRY (pedestrians) - Maintain physical distancing as you pay gate entry fees on arrival.



To comply with our COVID checklist, we are providing bottles of 80% alcohol based hand sanitiser at all showgrounds entry points and at regular points throughout the Showgrounds. Please sanitise your hands regularly during your visit to the Wandoan Show.


To comply with our COVID checklist, we are providing signage around the Showgrounds and making announcements to remind you to maintain physical distancing of 1.5m away from people not in your usual household group. This will apply to all parts of the Wandoan Show including pedestrian walkways, side show alley, section exhibits, inside pavilions, seating and dancing. You are responsible for maintaining your distance from other people.

To comply with our COVID checklist, we are providing signage on all buildings that create an enclosed space, indicating the maximum capacity limit for that space.  Please comply with these maximum capacity limits so that everyone inside has the opportunity to maintain their physical distancing.


To comply with our COVID checklist, we are providing signage indicating where you are to enter and where you are to exit. These directions can apply indoors or outdoors, and can apply to buildings or open spaces. Please follow these directions to minimise co-mingling and cross over of queues.


To comply with our COVID checklist, we are providing foot markers where we are expecting queues to occur. These foot markers will indicate your position 1.5m away from the next person in the line. Please comply with all foot markers to maintain physical distancing standards. .


To comply with our COVID checklist, we are providing seating signage where we are expecting patrons to be seated. This seating signage will remind you to remain physically distant when seated, o sit in family or household groups.
