Watch the dust rise as hundreds wrestle, ride and race on bucking beasts at the Xstrata Mount Isa Rodeo – the largest event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
See the streets of Cloncurry come to life with the colours of the Mardi Gras street parade or lay out a blanket with your kids for the Teddy Bear’s picnic. Join the punters at the Birdsville Races and hold onto your best racing hat as the dust flies and you cheer the horses to the finish line or pick up a prize at Fashions of the Field.
Swap your racing best for boots and the track for bushland as you place your bets at the quirky Windorah Yabbie Races. Celebrate Queensland’s rural heritage and discover a unique Australian sport, campdraft, where cattle, horse and rider come together.
Or try your hand at polocrosse or admire the skills of Australia’s stockman keeping the traditions of the bush alive at the Stockman’s’ Hall of Fame Campdraft.
