'The Melbourne Cup of Camel Races'
Join us in Outback Queensland for the iconic Boulia Camel Races from 16 - 18 July, 2021.
BOULIA CAMEL RACES 16 - 18 July 2021
As the camels come hurtling down the track through the plume of red dust, you’ll have one of those ‘this is epic’ moments.
It’s the Melbourne Cup of camel racing - the longest camel race in Australia (running a 1500m cup final) and also offers a rich prize pool in the professional camel races circuit.
It’s an outback adventure, in the land of the legendary Min Min Light, sharing extraordinary events with a bunch of new friends.
Beyond the camel races you’ll find live entertainment, yabby races, the hilarious camel tagging & sheep tagging competitions, markets, food, fireworks, children’s amusements and a host of novelty races.
