Birdsville Races Gala

The Birdsville Race Club presents the annual RFDS Birdsville Races Gala. The most glamorous event of race week, the Gala provides a fantastic opportunity to dress up and experience outback hospitality in style.  Live entertainment, special guests and an RFDS charity auction. Numbers are strictly limited so get in quick.


Fred Brophy is the last boxing tent showman in the world and he’s become a legend at events around the outback. Fred is a fourth generation showman; his dad was a side-show operator and his mum – a trapeze artist.

The Boxing Troupe has become as much an iconic part of the races as the races is an iconic event in itself.

Brophy is truly one of Australia’s greatest entertainers and his nightly shows opposite the Hotel are a must for all visitors.
