Birdsville
Races
Photographs by Glenn Hunt
The feature race is of course the Birdsville Cup which is on the Saturday but there are races that surround the Cup on the Friday and Saturday. On both days the races don't kick off until the afternoon which is probably to accommodate the many pulsating headaches that throb in the caravan park and surrounding area in the morning.

As you pay your fee at the racetrack entrance you are greeted by a gentleman wearing jockey goggles and you soon find out that you wished also that you could of shown the same resourcefulness. Any loose skin is immediately torn from your body as you walk beside the track and yours eyes struggle to stay open, let alone focus as dust whirls viciously around you.
