Charity Rodeo Underway To Support Murphy’s Creek Community & Toowoomba Hospital

It’s Bulls, Barrels, Utes & Music at the annual Fossil Downs Charity Bush Rodeo Extravaganza, Fifteen Mile Road, Murphy’s Creek on Friday evening 2nd and Saturday 3rd September.

Top class rodeo with RSA affiliated cowboys in action plus all the thrills of the richest barrel racing in Australia and a Ute Show to boot. There will be poddy calf rides for the kids and a host of country music entertainment.

Some of the biggest & meanest bulls from Danny McLaughlin’s Toogoolawah mountain country will be in action to test the bull riders including ‘Wild Child’, ‘Air Borne’ & ‘Black Pearl’ while the barrel racing girls will vie for $5,000 in prizemoney; the biggest purse ever provided on the circuit.

This is the 4th year of the rodeo and while the events of January 10 in Murphy’s Creek are still etched deep, the event will play a role in the healing process and bring the community together. Funds raised from the event will assist the local community as well as the Toowoomba Hospital Renal & Oncology Units. Entertainment by local country artists will also keep everybody entertained.

Elimination events for the barrel racing plus entertainment on Friday night while Saturday 3rd September is all the action of Bulls, Barrels, Utes & Music. Gates open at 10.00am on Saturday. Bar, Canteen and Camping facilities are available, with campers waking up to a delicious hot breakfast.

Entry for Saturday is Adults $25, Children $10, Concessions $15, Families $40. Just follow the signs to Murphy’s Creek and get into the action of Charity Rodeo…..
