WHAT'S ON IN JUNE?
Four days packed with great country fun. Everyone is welcome, bring the camping gear, some warm clothes and don't forget your races outfit!
There are a great range of events to suit all ages and participation levels. As well as the standard program of racing, campdraft and rodeo, there is kids and adults gymkhana; and a variety of kids events for those without a horse also. The kids always enjoy their Fancy Dress party, and for the bigger kids there is the very popular iron man and women events known as the "Battle of the Barkly".
Camping is included in the entry fee, and a bar and canteen operate over the whole event. So, where ever you are, pack your swag and make tracks to the Brunette Races this June.
