Shepparton Bird Expo & Sale
Our Annual bird expo & sale is held at the Shepparton Showgrounds, Archer Street, on the third Sunday in May. Once again it will be in the large multi-purpose pavilion.
The expo caters for Australian and foreign birds, with the exception of poultry and domestic pigeons.
The Minister for Agriculture has now provided an Exemption from prosecution in relation to non-native species, so bird sales can now resume their normal format.
Along with birds for sale there is a complete range of avian products including feeds & supplements, toys, medicines, leg rings, breeding & carry boxes, etc.
A canteen is available.
The expo will open to the public at 9:30am to allow time to look at the commercial sites and the bird display. The sale of birds commences at 11:00am and closes at 2:00pm.
Entry fee is $5, children under 13 are free.
