The Koroit Sheepdog Trials Committee are thrilled to be running the 2023 Australian Sheepdog Championships from 31 January – 5 February 2023 at Victoria Park, Koroit.
Sheep Dog Trials are a unique heritage sport where three species—sheep, dog and human—endeavour to work together to complete a course of three obstacles in fifteen minutes.
Sheep dog trials have been part of the Australian pastoral history with the first trials held in the world in Australia in the early 1870’s. The workers realised that these events brought together owners and breeders in a convivial atmosphere to discuss those matters relating to the breeding, training, feeding, care and development of their canine charges. Since that time, trial objectives, which are for the betterment of breeding, work and treatment of the sheep dog, have not changed.
Between Warrnambool and Port Fairy, Koroit is a short drive off the Princes Highway – Great Ocean Road. Nestled on the northern slopes of the dormant volcano Tower Hill, the unique and character-filled town of Koroit is one of Australia’s most complete examples of an early Irish settlement. Koroit is an abbreviation and simplification of the name of the Aboriginal people of the area known as the Koroitch Gundidj.
