Outside of the race track,Fashion on the Fields was a final day highlight, with classic, contemporary and novelty divisions for men, women, couples and families.

As in previous years, entertainment and trackside hospitality were also key draw-cards, while live music, pub festivities and Fred Brophy’s famous Boxing troupe kept crowds bustling in the township of Birdsville itself.
