Competitive log chopping has for many years been an essential attraction at the Make Smoking History Kelmscott Show. The art of log chopping itself represents what our early settlers had to endure when establishing farms and town sites out of virgin bush land. The first known competitive log chop, which had a truly Australian appeal to it, happened in the late 1800’s in a hotel in Tasmania. Two timber workers of the day challenged one another to see who could sever a log in half the quickest. Who the timber workers were and who won is still a mystery, but this paved the way for a sport which has become world renowned.
