Multicom Presents Artesian Express Race Day

The Julia Creek Dirt n Dust Festival joins forces with the Julia Creek Turf Club, where Multicom presents the Artesian Express Race Day, a fantastic day of country racing for visitors to the region who can rub shoulders with locals and visitors alike. Horses from all around the North West will be competing at one of the richest race meetings in the North West Queensland.

The race day includes the exclusive Donnie Harris Law Trackside Tastes, which is a cocktail-style luncheon by the Julia Creek Turf Club.

This year it is themed “Birdcage in the Bush”, you can purchase VIP passes to this exclusive trackside marquee which includes nibbles, private bar and outback casino with fun money.

Fashions on the Field and roving children’s entertainment plus good old-fashioned novelty games entertainment for the kids and big kids alike make this an outback race meet that you don’t want to miss.
Gates open at midday and the first race is at 12:00 pm on a five-race card.

Each year we say it because each year we prove it – bush racing is alive and doing stronger than ever!
Fashions on the Field is a big part of the Julia Creek Dirt n Dust Race Day! The quality of fashions we continue to see each year during this event are simply stunning, they wouldn’t be out of place at Flemington or Randwick! But don’t be scared, there will be others that are there exhausted from the Adventure Run who have only just managed to pull on clean clothes. Julia Creek is the sort of town where nothing is out of place.

Official Race Queensland meet, the Multicom Artesian Express Race Day is staged by the Julia Creek Turf Club and has become an institution for Dirt’n’Dust Festival goers.
