Birdsville Bronco Branding, Campdraft and Rodeo

Watch professional bushmen and women demonstrate their traditional bush skills and experience the fast moving action as teams tough it out to be the quickest to brand cattle using the traditional method of branding in the bush: without a calf cradle and out in the open.

It happens in May every year and it’s all part of recognising country traditions and keeping these skills alive. The weekend also features a campdraft competition and a much anticipated sunset rodeo. Live music and dancing adds to the atmosphere while crowds cheer on their favourite bushmen who share in the $17,000 prize money.
