Laura Polson

50th Taree Showgirl, and Manning Valley Ambassador.

You may know Laura as a journalist with the Manning River Times, but her chat with us focussed on her role as Taree Showgirl 2015. She shared her passion about the Manning Valley, reflecting on what she has achieved as Miss Taree Showgirl, and explain her motivation for entering 12 months ago. Her great respect for the show tradition, ethos and those behind it was very evident.


"Laura is such an inspiration!" This and similar sentiments have been heard whenever her name comes up. She is a very enthusiastic ambassador for the region – and keen to keep the motivation for promotion of the area ongoing and increasing, especially among the younger Valley residents.
