HORSE AND CAMEL EVENTS
Outside the Middle-East, Australia has the largest number of camels and loves to race them, especially in Outback towns. The most famous is the Birdsville Races, where 1000s of people flock for a for a few days of fun, come rain or searing heat. In 2016 the Innamincka horse races were cancelled due to rising floodwaters, so the pub held mini fox terrier races instead.
