This is an action-packed weekend with something for all the family to enjoy. Talented jockeys vie for position on the outback track, testing their skills and pitting their steeds against each other. Ringers and stockmen compete with rodeo riders who travel great distances for a chance to take home some amazing prizes and trophies.
The Laura Rodeo and Races are a great social event. People travel from all over Cape York Peninsula to join in the fun and frivolity, together with friends and visitors from further south.
The Horsesports are also held over the same weekend, with locals and visitors competing in traditional events such as the barrel races.
