Gascoyne produce has taken out top honours at this year's Perth Royal Show.
The Gascoyne district exhibit, which features fresh produce, honey and even fibreglass dugongs, won first place for the northern region.
Exhibit coordinator Tracey McNee from the Shire of Carnarvon says she and her team worked hard to incorporate all of the region's many wonders in the display.
"One of the winning elements for us that the judges commented on is a calendar of produce. We used fresh fruit and vegetables so people were able to see what's in season when.
"The judges also commented on the magnificent underwater whale shark design we had as our background."
The Gascoyne has also been awarded Best Display of Vegetables, Best Display of Honey and Best Display of Aquatics.
Tracey says show-goers have been very curious to hear more about the region.
"The kids absolutely love it, they ask a lot of questions about our dugongs, what they eat and whether the babies really travel on their mums' backs.
"A lot of people remember having travelled through the Gascoyne and they certainly know our bananas, which is really reassuring."
Punters can visit the exhibit at the Perth Royal Show until October 5th, after which Tracey says all the fruit and veg will be put to good use.
"Our fresh produce will go to a big BBQ for all the volunteers and workers. So there's a bit of party for the show people once it's all over."
