Quindanning Picnic Race Day

Annual community race day with more country atmosphere than you can poke a stick at.


Steeped in history and legend, the Quinny Races were originally founded in 1919 with locals taking their horse and carts down for an afternoon of entertainment; known then as the "Brumby Races."

Disbanding for a few decades after WWII, the Quindanning Races were resurrected one New Years day in 1979 by two mates arguing over the superiority of their respective horses. The bet was made and the wager set ($100)... with word soon getting out, crowds of over 800 people began to gather to bear witness. 

Today, the event is a celebration of community spirit, filled with many weird and wonderful events throughout the day and night. Horse races, live music, a gymkhana for all ages, donkey races and many more novelty events... the Quindanning Races is an event unlike any other.
