Birdsville, Queensland

While the usual population of Birdsville is just 120, this outback town in central west Queensland perched on the edge of the desert swells to thousands for one of the best known horse race programs in Australia. Held over two days since 1882, a dozen races are run on the dusty track with the town also putting on daily entertainment for the whole family.
