Paradise Lagoons Campdraft

Sporting Events

2 May 2019 to 5 May 2019

The annual Paradise Lagoons Campdraft conducted just outside of the Beef Capital of Australia – Rockhampton in Central Queensland is one of the nation’s richest and largest campdrafts – one of only three home grown Australian sports.

The world class venue features three campdraft arenas and a cutting arena, supported by well designed infrastructure for competitors, sponsors and spectators, event and support staff, and cattle management. As well as dawn to dusk horse sports action, the four day program includes live entertainment, the Super Sires auction, an extensive trade fair where you can purchase everything from a new cowboy hat to a cowhide handbag.

A well stocked bar and canteen are supplemented by a host of food vans. On Saturday evening the crowds swell to capacity to enjoy the annual State of Origin Campdraft, first conducted in 2009, where the best riders from Queensland take on the might of New South Wales.

The Paradise Lagoons Campdraft offers you a truly iconic outback experience, and should be on your calendar of ‘must do’ events!
