Claremont Showground

The Claremont Showground in within the suburb of Claremont but not an official locality within its own right. This is the home of the Royal Agricultural Society situated a little to the north-east of Claremont town. Annually, usually during the first week of October, the R.A.S. holds its agricultural show featuring a plethora of events. The ground used to host Friday night speedway. Throughout the year the ground hosts special activities, shows and events
