Big Ferris Wheel set to turn

ONE of the staples of any agricultural show is back in Grafton this year, bigger and better than ever.

The Ferris Wheel at the 144th Grafton Show will take punters 34 metres towards the clouds.

The new addition was imported three months ago from Italy and is the largest travelling Ferris Wheel in Australia.

The Ferris Wheel will light up its section of Grafton Showground with 8500 glittering bulbs.

It is also worth about $1.3 million. It goes through a 28-point check to ensure the safety of all of its riders.
