The camel races are the main attraction of the three day event, but the tracksides will host an eclectic mix of cultural entertainment on the tracksides. Festivalgoers will encounter street performers, cuisine, art workshops, and entertainment from across the globe, an extraordinary experience to find in a small, inland country town.
“Even we don’t know what to expect from our camel racing competitors, or the yabbie races for that matter, but that’s the fun of it. Both creatures can be a bit unpredictable, so you may back a camel who runs in the opposite direction, or punt on a yabbie that does a sprint, all be it slow motion, for the finish line,” said Festival President Richard Thornbury.
“We are incredibly proud of how our small community pulls together this country event,” said Thornbury.
“It’s very satisfying to see our local businesses booming that week, when usually they are doing it a bit tough here in the bush.”
