non-stop adrenaline fueled drama on dirt!

Notorious for Australia’s toughest conditions, the Julia Creek Dirt n Dust Festival also attracts the country’s toughest bull riders. Catch the non-stop dangerous drama on dirt as the insanely brave cowboys risk it all. There are no time outs, no towels to through in, nothing but try and hold on for 8 bone-shaking, desperate seconds!

Combine the action of the arena with great music and seating sloping down to the arena fence so you feel the anticipation, but with the typical laid-back attitude of outback towns – you have an event not to be missed. Riders from all over Australia will converge at Dirt n Dust Central to try their best to take home over legendary prize money.

Friday night will see the broncs take to the arena in the Open Saddle Bronc.

On Saturday the rodeo will open with the future champions of professional rodeo showing off their skills in the Mini Bulls event, followed by the crowd stopping Xtreme Bulls Australia with the Open Bull Ride in the Mitech Bull Arena.
