From modest beginnings, today’s event brings together people from all walks of life – people from Queensland, Australia and overseas.

Horse races

The Julia Creek Dirt n Dust Festival join forces with the Julia Creek Turf Club to present the South 32 Artesian Express Race Day. It is a  wonderful race meeting for visitors to the region, as they have the chance to enjoy and witness a real outback race meeting.

The race day includes the exclusive Country Tastes Luncheon, fashions on the field and entertainment for the kids and bigger kids!

Each year we say it, because each year we are proven that bush racing is alive and doing stronger than ever!

Fashion 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 and amazing, they well and truly rival the fashions you would see in the bigger race meets across the country.

The event is always a success, with an amazing amount of women, men and couples vying for a place in one of the many categories!
