Description

Since 1882, every September the tiny outback town of Birdsville becomes a busy place where racers compete for the much sought after trophy that is the XXXX Gold Birdsville Cup. The famous carnival attracts thousands of people yearly for two days of quality outback racing and two great nights of live entertainment. The program consists of 12 races and prize money in excess of $110,000. If betting on your favourite horses and watching the competition doesn’t keep you completely busy, you can add to your daily schedule the AKUBRA Fashions of the Field or Fred Brophy, the world’s last boxing tent showman’s troupe performance. If even this is not enough to whet your appetite, then there's also whip cracking and a giant auction.
