Camel Cup is a quirky race where the family and fundraiser event is well known for its unpredictable and very entertaining camels as well as the brave and crazy riders.
5,000 people from all over the world come to watch.
While camels may have a reputation as dedicated ‘ships of the desert’, these magnificent beasts are certainly not short on personality. Racing them can prove a nightmare for riders and handlers but fantastic viewing for spectators. Entertainment is assured, with nine unique races scheduled around the dusty outback track throughout the day.
There is lots of action between races, too. Belly dancers, rickshaw races, ‘Kids Camel Capers’ hobby camel races, rides, Mr and Miss Camel Cup challenges, food stalls and bars add to the carnival atmosphere.
