More Info

The Moonie Yabbie Races is a must-do on your social calendar! Join hundreds of people to watch locally-trained yabbies compete for the hotly contested Moonie Cup!

Since 2006, the small rural community of Moonie on the Western Downs in Queensland presents a jam-packed entertainment program for everyone! Bring the whole family for a great day and night of non-stop entertainment! Enjoy free kids rides and activities, outdoor displays, browse the gift stalls and enjoy scrumptious food and a licensed bar. There will also be a celebrity chef guest appearance!

Their claw-clenching race program will attract plenty of supporters! Buy your own yabbie or form a syndicate and bid at auction for your yabbie racer! Don’t forget to create a name for your syndicate! The winner from each preliminary race will automatically enter the final race of the day, the Moonie Cup!

There will also be raffles, an auction of donated items, Fashions on the Field competition, a helicopter lolly drop and much more! The fun will continue late into the night with live music, fireworks and the bucking yabbie (mechanical bull)!

Free camping available. No Eftpos facilities.
