Middleton Country Fair, now in it’s 27th year, is held at the Middleton Community Centre, McDowall St, Middleton, on the first Saturday in February each year and is in the heart of “Scarecrow Country”. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE 2018 FAIR WAS ON SATURDAY FEBRUARY 3TH.
The lovely little hamlet of Middleton is situated on the picturesque D’Entrecasteaux Channel being 45 minutes easy drive south from Hobart or 25 minutes north from Cygnet.
Smell the clean fresh country air of the Channel Country as you travel on the picturesque Channel Highway to Middleton and enjoy the breath taking water vista of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and unique Bruny Island on your way.
