We can’t wait to see you for the Birdsville Races in nine days. Before you load your swags and esky into the car, we have a few important updates to help you safely travel to Birdsville.
As of 30 March 2022 roads into Birdsville from all directions are open. However, we encourage everyone travelling by car to Birdsville to check local road reports via Diamantina Shire Council for the latest information.
AT THE RACES
Race meetings in Queensland are subject to the requirements of the Queensland Government’s Public Health and Social Measures linked to vaccination status and will be conducted as fully vaccinated events. Proof of vaccination will be required to enter the Birdsville Race Club and other venues in town.
We encourage you to download the Check In QLD app and link your vaccine record to the app for a smooth and easy entry process. We will also offer attendees the opportunity to wear a wristband to signify they have shown proof of vaccination. That will allow you to enter other sites without the need to show proof again.
For entry, you’ll just need to have your ticket ready for scanning at the gate.
Have a safe and fabulous trip to Birdsville, wherever you may be coming from.
