2021 Dawes Hall Campdraft

June 11 - June 13

If you’ve never been to a campdraft before, you’re in for a treat! Distinctively Australian, campdrafts are a ritual of the drover, harking back to the mid-1880’s and passed down through generations. Balance, timing and strength are on full show as riders cut one bull, steer or stag away from the herd and guide them into the camp (arena). Suddenly, everything happens at whip cracking speed, horse and rider with only seconds to go guide the animal through a course and figure eights and then through the gates (flags).

Held at the beautiful Dawes Hall campdrafting grounds, a canteen and licensed bar operate over the weekend.
