Tara Festival is Back in 2022!

The camels are racing back to Tara for a weekend of Camels + Culture + Camping

Tara Festival of Culture & Camel Races returns for another big weekend on 29 – 31 July 2022.

It’s Australia’s BIGGEST and MOST FUN camel races.
All the best bits of CAMELS + CULTURE + CAMPING will be back.  Can’t wait to see you in Tara!

The Camels are Back!

Get set for all the action of 2 days of professional camel races.  Did you know the jockeys and camel trainers look forward to Tara Festival as much as you do?!  Here’s why…

  • It’s the last stop on the winter Outback Queensland camel racing circuit and the cameleers say Tara Festival for them is the a fun party at the end!
  • Many have been racing every year since the first Tara Camel Races in 2001 (Lou our local races organiser does a great job!)
  • There’s $32,000 prize money up for grabs, plus trophies and ribbons.

The Culture is Back!

The cultural entertainment is non-stop during Tara Festival and soon we’ll be announcing an exciting line-up of dancers, musicians, singers and a few surprises up our sleeves too.

The Camping is Back!

We’ll be ready with 2,000+ camp sites, because camping is all part of the festival fun.

$60 Per camping site is a flat fee to cover your whole stay (same fee to stay 1 night or 5 nights). Onsite camping available nights 27 – 31 July 2022.  CAMPING BOOKINGS OPEN MARCH 2022 (date to be announced).
