This year’s first event will be the Anzac Day Round, with all proceeds going directly to the Mareeba RSL, supporting local veterans and keeping history alive. 

Organiser Peter Brown said he was keen to welcome the Mareeba and surrounding communities back to the series, promising a night of bull riding fun. 

“This ride will support our local veterans on the ground and all they do ... and thank them for their service,” he said. 

“We also have supported the Make-A-Wish Foundation during the finals, the McGrath Foundation, and this year, our new show in Pentland, just outside Charters Towers, will be supporting the Royal Flying Doctors Service.”

Besides the bull riding action, Country DJ will be playing well-known country songs throughout the night and at the after party. 

There will also be loads of giveaways, a variety of food vans and family friendly activities for everyone to enjoy.

Free camping will also be available on the night. 

Tickets are available to purchase at the gate or at
