The MCAV Get Together is one of the most popular rural events held in country Victoria each year. Since 1980, the Cattlemen celebrate their heritage with this yearly event run over three days in January when the weather is hot and the High Country beckons.
2019 Get Together
The MCAV is now in a position to announce that the 2019 G2G will be at Oxley Recreation Reserve near Wangaratta on January 11-13, 2019. The land is a DWELP reserve. Obtaining the final tick from the Oxley Recreation Reserve committee and the authorities to go ahead has held up this announcement, for which we apologise.
This year’s G2G organising Committee is now up and running and we are excited!
Tickets for 2019 are now available here.
Oxley Recreation Reserve is a beautiful shaded, picturesque setting on the King River. It is smaller than previous venues so we have to slightly restrict the number of tickets available for those wishing to camp. Due to the restricted size of the venue our team has adapted arrangements and programs to suit.
The MCAV Central Council has a policy that Get Together events should reflect the traditional values and skills of Mountain Cattlemen and celebrate their rich history and heritage. It intends to maintain the event as a family friendly affair. It especially encourages families and horse competitors to attend.
We want everyone to have fun!
This year’s organising committee has strict riding instructions from the MCAV and there will be zero tolerance for any antisocial behaviour. One warning only and then they are out the gate!
We will be relying heavily on our volunteers again this year to spread the huge workload on the Committee, which we sure everyone understands is considerable.
Unfortunately, to keep the event financially viable, we have had to increase our ticket prices due to increased costs of liquor licensing compliance, security and general cost increases.
It was a tough decision but it was either increase prices or close down.
Oxley G2G will have the usual great daytime entertainment and live bands and entertainment during the nights. Horse competitors can purchase tickets through their entry forms. For those on a tight budget there will be unrestricted numbers of day tickets on sale and there are many great camping areas nearby.
These changes have been made to ensure the event is sustainable moving forward. We are very happy to answer any questions that you may have.
