Mighty Mitta Muster marks 46th year with good, old-fashioned family fun

Perfect weather and old fashioned country-style entertainment drew thousands to the annual Mighty Mitta Muster on Sunday.

The muster has been running for more than 45 years with woodchopping events, tug-o-war, whip cracking and the stockmen’s challenge – now in its 10th year – all proving popular.

Mitta’s Magorra Park Recreation Reserve also hosted displays of Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and CFA firefighting equipment as well as Forrest Air Helicopters.

Organisers also said this year also saw the largest market with more than 40 stallholders.

“It’s been fantastic,” Muster spokesperson Lorrae Saxton-Smyth said. “The motorbike stunt show has been amazing to watch, those somersaults through the air were breathtaking.”
