This aerial photo is believed to have been taken by Joyce Bond during a helicopter ride at the 1983 Dayboro Show. The county surrounding the Showgrounds was looking magnificent. The creeks, waterholes and dams all appear very full so there must have been plenty of recent rain.
There are no buildings at the football oval. The rodeo arena and yards can be clearly seen but there are no housing estates in existence. It wasn’t long though. In a 1984 Dayboro Show aerial photo Rodeo Drive can be seen under construction.
