The Corner Country may have a small permanent population but it does hold some big events each year. Run by members of the local communities, these events are generally also fund raisers for the Royal Flying Doctor Service, the Tibooburra Health Service or other worthwhile local causes. They are a great way for visitors to engage with local characters and get a down-to-earth feel about life in the Corner Country.
Participants bring their horses and ponies, and for some events their motorbikes to perform competitively in events.
Facilities and amenities include seating for observers and participants, toilets and showers and generally a dance floor for a little bit of partying after the day is done. Meals, snacks and drinks are always available.
