The Macksville Show takes place at the Macksville Showground every year over the Easter Long Weekend. The show itself attracts the -- typically white, in an area with a large Indigenous population -- young families that demographically make up the second-largest population group in the area, following those aged 65 and over. Macksville, situated in the Nambucca Valley on the Mid-north Coast of NSW, has for decades been a major pit-stop on the Pacific Highway. The town remains well-known as formerly possessing the largest traffic bottle-neck of the holiday season, thanks to its single carriageway iron bridge traversing the Nambucca River. Oversized trucks crossing the bridge could hold up traffic in both directions for hours. The Pacific Highway upgrades, a perpetual work-in-progress, bypassed Macksville in December 2017. This series being shot in early 2017, it was the last Macksville Show to take place while Macksville was still a highway town. Though the locals overwhelmingly support the bypass, the area's already low employment rate and distance from major cities seem certain to render the already sleepy town's future even quieter. It is unlikely, however, that the Macksville Show, also a competition event for the region's livestock industry, would cease running. It is one of few annual family events in the area and attracts a modest, but essential, economic boom every April. This will surely prove more and more important as the town learns how to adapt to life beyond the Pacific Highway.
