IT MIGHT BE la­belled weird and quirky by out­siders, but to the lo­cals it’s sim­ply the Out­back Fes­ti­val; an eclec­tic event that’s been draw­ing vis­i­tors since 1972. Held in Win­ton, cen­tral west Queens­land, the fes­ti­val is a blend of out­back-themed events and tra­di­tional Aussie ex­pe­ri­ences, in­clud­ing whip-crack­ing cham­pi­onships, bush­man’s egg throw­ing, strong­man chal­lenges and wool-bale rolling. Then there’s the True Blue Sports pro­gram that tests pe­cu­liarly Aussie sport­ing skills, such as kick­ing a footy and throw­ing a cow­pat dis­cus, as well as fea­tur­ing the fes­ti­val’s signature event, the Quil­ton Aus­tralian Dunny Derby.
