A great weekend of horse and motorbike events, the Birdsville Horse and Motorbike Gymkhana is a family event where skilled bushmen and women demonstrate their craft.
Held in the Bronco Branding Yards in Birdsville, riders can either put their horsemanship skills to the test on Saturday with barrel, flag and herding races, or simply kick back ringside and enjoy the dusty action. Real horsepower is replaced by mechanical horsepower on the Sunday with dirt bikes and quads repeating Saturday’s events on wheels.
Families can enjoy onsite catering, loads of live music, evening entertainment and free camping. And if one weekend of horses and bikes wasn’t enough, the carnival happens all over again next weekend at the Bedourie Campdraft, Rodeo and Gymkhana just up the road.
