The Pride of the West Station Challenge is a unique event held annually in late September. Pride of the West see the stockmen and women of the Channel Country gather at Bulloo Park to compete in a range of events including Two Handed Cutting, 250 metre flutters and a Stockman’s Challenge.

Originally designed to fill the gap when Quilpie lost its second thoroughbred meeting over a decade ago, the event has become a much-loved annual occasion, with the main day resembling a conventional race day complete with bookies, Sky Channel and Fashions on the Field.

This year the Pride of the West will be held 28 – 30 September. Further details will be published closer to the date.
