This amazing outback event is more than just horse racing!

The first weekend in September comes alive to this colourful outback event. Attracting visitors from all parts of Australia and the world via road and aircraft and is one of the most remote official horse races.


Now in its 135th year, the first race meeting was originally held in 1882 as an event for hack and stock horses with a few local spectators. The carnival now includes a 13-race program and is a much sought after trophy and is famous throughout the world.
