Compass Cup

Community Event

26 Jan 2019

The Compass Cup held annually in January at Mount Compass, South Australia, is Australia’s only Cow Race.

Running since 1974 this event includes something for everyone. Throughout the afternoon there are cow themed participant events like milk loading, rubber boot marathon, milk skull-off, all starting with the dung fling – a children’s event. All are welcome to join in the fun and be part of the attractions.

The Compass Cup runs later in the afternoon and starts with teams of four bidding to buy a cow at the auction on site, following this the teams compete in Australia’s Only Cow Race . The atmosphere is one of anticipation as the crowd wonders which jockey will stay on their cow long enough to reach the finish line.

Also part of day is a Ute Muster, where competitors show-off their beloved utes, plus a new addition of a Dog High Jump Competition. All these activities are surrounded by food stalls, market stalls and show rides finishing the day with live music in to the evening.

Come join the fun and colour of the Compass Cup.
