Where is it? 1400km north-west of Brisbane
Every second year since 1972, residents of Winton have held a week-long festival to celebrating the tenacity and down-to-earth sprit of The Outback. There’s the Australian Dunny Derby (outhouse racing; probably better seen than explained), a bush poet’s breakfast, and outback iron man, woman and kid competitions. It’s a great festival for families with young kids. To really get into the spirit, stay in Tent City during the festival (September 20-24, 2011).
