Greyhound Australia

Get a taste of life in the Outback with Greyhound Australia.

The sleepy Outback Queensland town of Birdsville comes alive in the first weekend of September with the annual Birdsville Picnic Race Meeting. This event attracts people from all over Australia, from the city to the bush.

Let Greyhound Australia do the driving, while you sit back and enjoy the relaxed way of life that typifies the outback.

Greyhound Australia offer a six-day package deal including return travel, camping accommodation, most meals and a Birdsville Races t-shirt for an all-inclusive price. You may also purchase an optional Birdsville souvenir badge for a special discounted price. This badge covers all entry costs for the race weekend.

As facilities are limited in Birdsville, camp lifestyle is the only way to handle the influx of people. Greyhound Australia is very experienced in undertaking this, (they have been doing it every year since the 1970s) and their Camp is now almost as famous as the races themselves.

Greyhound Australia have been a major part of the famous Birdsville Races for the last 25 years. On race day their coaches shuttle people to and from the racetrack for a small fee which is donated to a worthy charity.

Join Greyhound Australia for the fun and adventure of the Birdsville Races and experience life in the Outback!
