Save the date! 1-3 October 2021

Distinctively Australian, campdrafts are a ritual of the drover, harking back to the mid-1880’s and passed down through generations. Hard, fast and unforgiving, good natured gamesmanship between mates around the campfire sparked the now furious campdraft competition that honours the elite in mustering and drafting skills and the Camboon Campdraft is no exception!

Held in townships large and small right across the country, the heats are a crowd favourite as riders and their horses pitch their skills against man, beast and clock. Not a sport for the faint hearted, you have to have plenty of bull dust in your veins to want to try your chances at a title. But stock men, women and children still line up to do just that. Balance, timing and strength are on full show as riders cut one beast, 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 guide the animal through a course and figure eights and then through the gates (flags).
