On the third weekend in May of each year, Mareeba Shire Council plays host to ’The Great Wheelbarrow Race’. This is an event where competitors push an empty wheelbarrow along the ’Wheelbarrow Way’ between Mareeba and Chillagoe in three stages while fundraising for charities and local clubs.
This year, due to COVID-19, the event has been reformatted into a one day challenge!
