1947 Hobart Carnival
North Hobart Oval hosted the matches during the carnival, most of them under heavy rain. Western Australia, South Australia and the VFL were in Section A while Tasmania, New South Wales, Queensland and Canberra took part in Section B.
Western Australia caused an upset with a 4-point win over the VFL, the first time the Victorians had lost at a carnival since 1921. The VFL however claimed the Championship on percentage after easily accounting for South Australia by 76 points. Tasmania topped the Section B ladder to gain promotion to the top flight in the 1950 Brisbane Carnival.
