Newcastle Showground.


A deserted showground is eerie yet liberating. The Dog and Poultry Pavilions, built in 1906-08, are expected to be demolished due to their very poor condition and significant white ant damage. An archival record will be produced and an interpretive plan prepared later on.
Apart from that, Agricultural Shows are not as significant as they once were.
The Entertainment Centre (white) is also on site.

It is not the strongest of the species who survive, nor the most intelligent but the ones most responsive to change.
