Who Will Be Crowned The Champion?
One of the things that makes our festival unique is the range of outback novelty events! The perfect way to have fun, get involved in the festival community, and experience some of the traditional outback activities!
From bushman’s egg throwing to broom tossing, wool bale rolling to swag tossing, our events are a great way to get involved and have fun with the whole family.
Bushman’s Egg Throw
Test your skills in handling this very fragile item! Work in pairs with a thrower and catcher. The aim of the game is to try to throw and catch eggs without breaking the shell.
- The tosser throws an egg to their team-mate, the catcher
- After each successful catch, they spread further apart
- The winning team is the one that completes a catch without breaking the egg over the furthest distance
- The record stands at 54.31 metres! Can you beat this?
