The Great Cattle Dog Muster is a three day event being staged in September 2020 by the Muswellbrook Chamber of Commerce and Industry in conjunction with the Australian Cattle Dog Society of NSW Inc, with support of the Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog Social Club of QLD. The event is the first of its kind in Australia and is expected to draw visitors from across the region, around Australia, and from overseas.
With the Upper Hunter being the birth place of the Blue Heeler, this makes the region a ideal location and draw card for cattle dog breeders, exhibitors, enthusiasts and pet owners.
It is hoped that this event will become an annual signature event for Muswellbrook and the region.
The three day event has a combination of activities that cater for the serious cattle dog enthusiast, the pet cattle dog owner, and the general public.
With a country vibe, festival feel, and family open day, the event is expected to attract a large number of visitors.
