Family Attractions

The Hills Orchard Improvement Group (HOIG) is committed to promoting programs to increase nutritional awareness and consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables, both within schools and the broader community.

Our passion for this cause resulted in the introduction of the Crunch & Sip and Go for 2 & 5 promotions at the 2009 Karragullen Expo. The 2015 Karragullen Expo will endorse this further with this year's concept "From the Tree to the Table".

Fruit and vegetable kebab making, fresh fruit packs and a variety of promotional material were all available free of charge, and this continues at this year's event.  This ensures the little 'munch and crunchers' can refuel, stay healthy and happy!

Not just a machinery field day, the Karragullen Expo is well furnished to take care of the building blocks of our community - the family.  We have so many fun and free things for the kids to do!  With free rides, a bouncy castle and an interactive animal farm so the kids can pet the cute creatures, it makes is a very valuable day as kids are 12 years of age are admitted FREE!

The public response was overwhelming, and continues as we look towards the biggest ever Expo in its over 30 year history.  We look forward to continuing to treat our visitors with delicious fresh produce at this year's Karragullen Expo, along with many more lifestyle features to explore on the day.
