Primex When and Where

Primex is a 3 day Exhibition held annually in June, starting the first Thursday following the Queen’s Birthday long weekend and concluding on the Saturday.

Primex is held annually at Casino, in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales and is considered as one of Australia’s leading country centres. The town straddles the Richmond River which encompasses a range of attractions that make the wider Northern Rivers and North Coast Region such a unique part of Australia.

The location of Primex at Casino, places the Exhibition in a strategic “Hub” connecting north – south corridors of the Pacific highway (Sydney – Brisbane), Summerland Way – Mt Lindesay Highway (Grafton- Brisbane) and New England highways (Armidale-Brisbane) with the east-west corridor of the Bruxner Highway running through Casino and linking the Northern Rivers through to the tablelands via Tenterfield.
