Event Details

The Gregory Downs Saddles and Paddles weekend is full of family fun not to be missed. It’s an unexpected combination in the outback of Queensland.

The Gregory Downs Jockey Club (“Saddles”) and the North West Canoe Club (“Paddles”) combine for a great weekend of sport over the May Day long weekend. The Gregory Downs Jockey Club has been racing for over 100 years. See the Gregory Downs Canoe Race listing for more details of day 2.

Many members of the GDJC ‘saddle up’ on Sunday and compete in the canoe race. Maybe you would like to join them out on the river.

Free and entry and camping is available at the racecourse.
