Take advantage of the Australian Bush Heritage educational opportunity and bring your students to The Lower Lakes Stockman's Challenge & Bush Festival with FREE entry on Friday 14th September 2018

Gates Open 8am

The Australian Bush Stockman would often be alone for weeks patrolling fence-lines, or droving with a handful of mates for hundreds of miles in almost uninhabited country. These were the bush pioneers whose proficiency was developed as a simple matter of survival in a harsh land; they gave us our heritage, they were Legends!

The Lower Lakes Stockman’s Challenge and Bush Festival is a 3 day event held in Strathalbyn, South Australia with local and interstate competitors showcasing their skills in whip cracking, bareback obstacles, stock handling, packhorse, horse shoeing and cross country events.
