Taroom Polocrosse Carnival

July 10 - July 12

Taroom Polocrosse Carnival

A far cry from Taroom, Polocrosse began in Sydney in 1938 but it wasn’t until 1966 when a Polocrosse family moved to the district that the game got going in Taroom. Known as the ‘King of the one horse sports’ or ‘poor man’s polo’, you certainly wouldn’t know it from the following it gets.

The annual Carnival is held every year on the second weekend of July as it is only fitting to be played in the cooler months. For those two days, the Taroom Polocrosse Ground is packed with up to 35 teams, 200 competitors of all ages, 300 horses, 400 followers and a swag of excited onlookers, all ready and anxious for the games to begin.

Where is Taroom Polocrosse Carnival held?

The Carnival is held at the Taroom Polocrosse Grounds on the corner of the Leichhardt Highway and Injune Road, two kilometres south-west of Taroom.
