2020 Birdsville Races Cancellation Advice

Due to health and safety precautions surrounding the current pandemic the 2020 Birdsville Races have been cancelled.

In an official media release dated the 25th of May, 2020, the Vice President of the Birdsville Race Club Gary Brook stated:

“It is with heavy hearts that we have made the difficult decision not to stage the Birdsville Races this year. As much as we were holding onto the hope that we could run them, we’re at a point where we’ve had to concede defeat. The health of our patrons, and those who live in Outback Queensland, is of paramount importance to us – and it is impossible to know what the status with Covid-19 will be come September…”


“Racing has a key role to play in driving Queensland’s post-pandemic tourism recovery and we look forward to seeing Birdsville return bigger and better in 2021.”
