Organisers would be delighted with the massive crowd that poured through the gates for day one of Ironfest 2018.
People from all over Australia turned out in their thousands, with plenty appearing in some variety of costume.
Many opted for the traditional medieval or steampunk themes, while others embraced the headline Wild West theme chosen for 2018.
Throughout the day there were exhibitions ranging from blacksmithing, to American Civil War recreations and jousting.
There was also a World War Two demonstration that started with allied troops and machinery going up against Nazis with tanks, but ended with an invasion by Amazons, Vikings and a lone (but brave) Celtic warrior.
