All roads leading into Birdsville are open and ready for the influx of travellers set to hit town for the Birdsville Races next Friday and Saturday –September 2 & 3.
Birdsville will welcome close to 7,000 race goers with the majority of travellers making the drive through the Simpson Desert this week.
Race organisers have received queries about the impact a rise in the river might have on access to the area.
In response, Gary Brook, Vice President, Birdsville Race Club says, “I can confirm that all roads to Birdsville are open – and that the moderate rise in the river poses no threat at all to access to the region, or to the races. We’re looking forward to a great event.”
Now in its 134th year, the renowned Birdsville Races offer an outback experience like no other.
