The Birdsville Races, or the 'Melbourne Cup of the Outback', is a two-day race meet that attracts over 7,000 people to the legendary outback town of Birdsville, which usually has a population of only 100.

Internationally renowned as one of the most unique and enjoyable race-meets in the world, the Birdsville Races brings a plethora of equine action, continental cuisine, live entertainment, souvenir and handicraft stalls and first class fashion to the remote outback settlement for a whole week surrounding the two track days.
