Quilpie Diggers Race Club
Located in the Outback Queensland town of Quilpie, the Quilpie Diggers’ Race Club continues the proud tradition of bush racing commenced by its founders after World War II. A group of local soldiers who were prisoners of war, on their return home to the Quilpie district decided to form a racing club, hence the inclusion of “Diggers” in the official club title.
Today the Quilpie Diggers’ Race Club carries on with an enthusiastic committee, many of whom are younger members of the Quilpie community who have a love of racing and who are committed to sustaining the sport of kings as an integral part of Outback life.
In 2018 another fundraising event is scheduled in August with the inaugural Ellerston Onassis Exhibition Polo day, an event which will revisit the strong historical links between the Quilpie Diggers’ Race Club and Quilpie Polo.
