Bedourie Camel and Pig Races and Camp oven Cook-off

Sporting Events

8 Jul 2023 Annual Event

Forget horses, it’s the camels that reign supreme in Bedourie. Be amongst the hundreds of race goers who converge on the town to watch dozens of camels race in six events, worth a total of more than AUD11,000.

Also amongst the action is pig racing, wood chopping and novelty events like the ‘old farts’ and ‘old boilers’ foot race. Plus, enjoying the traditional camp oven cook-off, where you’re invited (free of charge) to bake your very own bread using provided ingredients.

If it happens to be a success (and not a brick) and you wanna take it home Easy, purchase your own world-famous camp oven invented in the droving camps of a bygone era just in town.
