Another great year at Murwillumbah Show

FORMER Kingscliff High School student Tammy Dundon took out the Tweed Agricultural Society Showgirl title on Saturday capping off what has been a winning year for the Cabarita resident.

The 22-year-old this year also took out the Banana Festival Queen and Charity Queen titles along with being named Miss Tweed at the 2013 Tweed Country Ball.

It's believed to be the first time one woman has taken out all the Tweed titles in the same year.

The beauty therapist, who is also studying musical theatre to pursue her dream of performing on Broadway, said she was surprised at coming out on top of five other queen challengers as she has very little knowledge of the agricultural sector having grown up in suburbia.

"It's just been my year," said Tammy.

"Thirteen's my favourite number and I guess it's my lucky number now."

Tammy says she is drawn to the old-fashioned charm of country shows and titles.

"I feel like I was born in the wrong era because these kinds of things are great for me."

In between her Queen duties, Tammy got to experience all the fun of the event held over three days at Murwillumbah Showground taking a spin on the ferris wheel and dodgem cars.

She also admitted to scarfing three dagwood dogs.

Show organisers are still crunching the numbers, but if the crowds in side show alley and packed car park is any indication it was a good year.
