Saturday Local Bull RIde

There are no time outs. No towels to throw in. Nothing, but try and hold on for 8 bone-shaking, desperate seconds!


Notorious for Australia’s toughest conditions, the Julia Creek Dirt n Dust Festival also attracts the country’s toughest bull riders.

The annual Dirt n Dust Bull ride returns to Julia Creek this year for three hours of non-stop dangerous drama on dirt as the insanely brave cowboys risk it all against the monstrous bulls that can weigh as much as 1,000kg.

Cowboys from all over Australia will converge at Dirt n Dust Central to try their best to take home the prize money plus a one-of-a-kind championship buckle.

Like all Bull Ride events, any one of the riders in the competition is able to step up on the night and deliver the winning ride. To ensure the competition is challenging, each rider will ride once with the top 10 scores from the Long Round qualifying back to the final and deciding Championship Round. The top 10 riders will then be randomly drawn against the top 10 bulls in the competition. The rider with the highest combined scores on two bulls will be crowned the winner.


Buckle up for 8 seconds of pure testosterone-filled adrenaline!
