There is plenty for everyone to enjoy at the Julia Creek Dirt n Dust Festival – don’t miss out on the fun!

Novelty events

An array of novelty events were brought to the stage during the 2015 event –each a success in its own right.

After the 2014 debrief, the decision was made to change the Novelty Events and no longer include the Bog Snorkelling Championships as a separate event, instead we opted to join the novelty events together and have a Bog Challenge.

The event saw competitors swim in the Bog trench, run up and down the hill and complete the ‘crumbed sausage’ in the Bull Arena. Cow Pat Throwing made an appearance as well.

These events are crucial to the festival as it continues to ensure authenticity and quirkiness that attracts much-needed media attention to regional North-West Queensland.
