Make the most of our Outback Festival experience by taking part in these hilarious Outback games.


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?
