Birdsville Races

This iconoc outback event is known as much for its socialising as it is for its horse racing. White Hat recommends that if you only have time to asttend one major event in the outback that you should consider this one. Once a year the remote town of Birdsville on the Birdsville Track comes alive with visitors from all over the outback as well as the rest of Australia. Don't expect acres of clipped lawns or delicately manicured roses, but do expect some hearty outback good cheer.
