Situated in the heartland of rural Sydney, near Richmond, the Hawkesbury Showgrounds offer the perfect location for this inaugural multi-discipline event. For four days these grounds will turn into a mecca for equine enthusiasts. The extensive, well maintained grounds offer room for EquiFest to spread out and thus provides ample space for spectator and competitor parking, as well as numerous competition arenas. Camping on these grounds is a pleasure due to the well-equipped and maintained facilities. The Blue Mountains on the horizon provide a picturesque backdrop to an event that celebrates ‘All Things Equestrian’. The fusion of beauty and functionality of the Hawkesbury Showgrounds reflects the regional lifestyle that encompasses EquiFest 2017.
