Bullish event returns
THE Duaringa Bullarama comes with the promise of non-stop action that won’t disappoint.
This Saturday the annual Duaringa Bullarama is on at the Duaringa Sports Complex with gates open from 5pm and the action at 7pm.
One of the organisers, Zoe Dunne said the Duaringa Bullarama is all about giving back to the community who support the local event.
“Everyone really does support it… and the local community enjoy it,” she said.
All funds raised from the event go to the emergency services in Duaringa, this year being the fifth that the event has been supporting the local services.
“The money we make all stays local,” Zoe said.
“It’s a local event for the local community.”
The action includes feature sections, junior, rookie, open bull rides and for the first time, the Bullarama is adding another category for locals who are game enough to give it a go.
Zoe said the idea came about as organisers wanted to give the locals a chance of participating against riders with the same amount of experience, which in some cases, is very little.
“It’s to create more interest so if you want to

hop on a bull you can and it is not run with guys who ride every weekend,” Zoe said.
Another first for this year is the introduction of a big screen which will feature action replays and rider’s name and information before each ride.
The company who are donating the screen for the event, Big Screens Australia, have another reason for coming along to the Duaringa event as a bull they co-own will be in the thick of the action.
The bull, Rock the House, is well known on the PBR circuit and will be featuring in Duaringa, coming off a successful trip to Cairns in recent weeks.
“We have got a lot of good quality bulls and good quality bull riders,” Zoe said of the arena action planned for this weekend.
Zoe encouraged families to come along to the entertaining night out with dinner sorted by the McCoy family and a full bar service provided by the Duaringa Golf Club.
Entry is $10 per person and families are $40.
