Draft Management Plan for Claremont Showgrounds
The Royal Agricultural Society of WA (RAS) has prepared a draft Management Plan for the Claremont Showgrounds to guide its future development. The plan will be considered by the Town of Claremont, but ultimately requires the approval of the state government through the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC).
The RAS has commenced its own public engagement on the draft plan. Please click here to find out more information from the RAS and provide feedback.
The Town intends to separately consult with the public on the draft plan following lodgement of the plan with the WAPC.

2020 Perth Royal Show Cancelled
A message from Peter Cooper, CEO of the Royal Agricultural Society of WA
“It is with genuine sadness that, in conjunction with the State Government, we confirm the cancellation of the 2020 Perth Royal Show.
“At every step of this process, we have been working with the State Government to develop a safe event which the WA community can be proud of. However, with the continuing outbreaks of COVID-19 in the Eastern States and the reemergence of the virus in New Zealand, it has become increasingly clear that we cannot proceed while simultaneously guaranteeing the safety of the public.
“While there is of course disappointment in making today’s announcement; as the CEO of this distinguished, not-for-profit organisation, I feel enormous pride in the hard work; dedication and courage of all those involved in the preparations for the 2020 event.
“The fact that we were unable to deliver this annual showcase is no reflection on the efforts of our staff; volunteers; competitors and council. On the contrary – their belief in giving the people of WA the event they deserved and their determination in the face of unprecedented challenges, should be applauded.
“While there will be tough decisions to be made over the next few months, one thing is certain. The Perth Royal Show will be back and we look forward to opening our gates to the thousands of show goers, from across WA, very soon.”
