Birdsville Races Air Packages

Birdsville Races – nothing beats being in Birdsville for the first weekend in September! Join us and fly to the races “In Style” on Thursday 30 August and return on Sunday 2 September 2018. 

A unique and true outback race meeting, the first race meeting held at the newly formed township of Birdsville, situated on the Diamantina River, eight miles north of the South Australian border, was held on the 20th, 21st, and 22nd of September (1882), and was largely attended, nearly 150 station owners, managers, stockmen, and other employees being present.

Today it is among one of the best events on offer in Outback Queensland, winning many awards over the years.
