Action packed Chillagoe Rodeo
THOUSANDS of people from across the region dusted off their boots for the biggest ever Chillagoe Rodeo.
Over 40 events took place over the weekend from open bull rides to saddle bronc, steer wrestling, barrel racing and more, with close to $25,000 in prize money up for grabs thanks to sponsors.
After many years, the Chillagoe Rodeo has become affiliated with the region’s leading bull riding authority – the ABCRA North Queensland Zone – and riders who competed in the bull rides were able to earn points towards the national title.
