Over the weekend there are many other activities including: the association country meeting, entertainment, kids activities, local attractions, raffle draws and more.
Mount Perry was settled some time in the 1860s with the discovery of rich copper deposits by Henry Dingle. The discovery lead to the development of the town as news of the discovery spread fast, and many prospectors took up blocks.
Mount Perry is a rural farming area, primarily raising cattle (hence the inspiration for the logo). Gold mining continues as an important industry. Evolution Mining owns and operates Mt Rawdon Mine which is a gold and silver mine. Mount Perry has historic copper workings. The Mount Perry Race Club runs horse racing events.
