‘Gotta getta Gator!’

The Gator in use at a recent event.

By Stanthorpe Agricultural Society

Everyone kept saying ‘gotta getta Gator, gotta getta Gator’, so, with a little help from some grant funding, we got one!

This achievement could only have been made possible through funding by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal in partnership with the Australian government.

We were also extremely grateful for the additional assistance provided by the team at Vanderfield in Toowoomba.

The off-road and high clearance Gator will be extremely useful on the ‘not-so-smooth’ terrain at the showgrounds to assist staff in their day-to-day activities that take place at the showgrounds.

Having a Gator will also enable our volunteers to host more events without increasing volunteer fatigue. We value our volunteers highly, and appreciate that their efforts and commitment form an integral part of the successful operation of the Society and the Showgrounds.

The Gator will also convey a professional image to visitors and campers staying at Stanthorpe Showgrounds and will be extremely useful in transporting goods and equipment around the grounds.

We are very grateful to FRRR and the Australian government for providing the funding for this project and, once again, for the assistance provided by Vanderfield in Toowoomba for helping make it happen.
