Shearers Hand Piece
This giant-sized replica stands out in allits glory on top of what locals call the ‘Shearers Shed’, encouragingvisitors to investigate what it represents.
At the height of the 1990sshearers from around the Stateand the nation would come toPingrup to pit their shearingskills against each other inregular competitions.
The shed is a perfect example of rural ingenuity andresourcefulness. A demonstration of the old adage, ‘He who wastesnot, wants not’. Originally used as the CBH (Cooperative BulkHandling) grain shed and once decommissioned, the Kent Shire,local Lions Club and Pingrup community saw an opportunity toconvert the shed into a Shearing Complex. Competitions were heldhere every year up until 2001.
