Dawes Hall Campdraft
May 6 @ 8:00 am - May 8 @ 5:00 pm
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 fill 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 to 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 will operate over the weekend.
