Australia's Most Famous
On the last full weekend of October every year, the nation’s top rodeo riders and the best broncs and bucking bulls gather for the Warwick Rodeo – known far and wide as “Australia’s Most Famous”. The riders and the bucking stock come together to try and prove the old saying wrong – “never the horse that couldn’t be rode, never the rider that couldn’t be throwed”. Warwick Rodeo was immortalized in song by Australian country music legend Buddy Williams in the early 1940s but well before then, Warwick had a tradition of horsemanship and great riders to match the city’s sandstone buildings, fine churches, rose gardens and wide, tree-lined streets. Today, Warwick Rodeo and Gold Cup Campdraft attracts crowds in excess of 30,000 people with competitors and horses travelling from every mainland state to compete.


Warwick Showgrounds – October 24th – 30th 2022

The Warwick Show and Rodeo Society are proud to announce that our premier event the Warwick Rodeo and Gold Cup Campdraft will be back in 2022.

In 2021 we run a full points Warwick Rodeo with $6000 being posted per open event.

The Gold Cup Campdraft is known as the Melbourne Cup of campdrafting and we can’t wait to welcome the competitors back to the arena.

The event has pushed through a few tough years with drought and the issues it posed with water security, now thanks to not only the recent rain but the Society investing in measures to ensure the grounds have a reduced impact on the urban utilities.

The Events and Marketing team have worked closely with Queensland Health, and will deliver a Covid Safe event for patrons. Our event is hosted in the picturesque Southern Downs with stunning waterfalls to one side and tantalizing wineries on the other. We can’t to invite visitors to our region to enjoy some good old country hospitality, enjoy the spectacle that is the Rodeo and Campdraft and kick up the dust into the night with live entertainment.

We will have more updates and ticket release information coming very shortly.
