GOOMERI welcomed the new year with a big night of rodeo action on Monday.
The annual Goomeri New Year's Eve Show Rodeo entertained about 1500 rodeo enthusiasts at the showgrounds.
The ute show psyched up the crowd for some top-class action before the women's barrel race got the night's schedule underway.
Other mainstay rodeo events included the open bull ride, saddle ride, bareback ride and breakaway roping.
Goomeri Show Society secretary Lyle Hasselbach said the rodeo was a great way for riders and spectators to end the year.
"Everyone certainly had a great time, that's for sure, and it was a really great night," he said.
"We had people from all over the place including two Frenchmen and an African."
Hasselbach said it was the biggest night of the year for the town of Goomeri.
"We were extremely busy all day Monday and a lot of people stayed on the Tuesday which all helped the little town's economy," he said.
"The highlight for me was probably just to see the large number of people in the crowd on Monday night which we didn't expect at all.
"We like to set a figure each year and we well and truly surpassed it."
