Racing down under: St Patrick’s Day 2018

Broken Hill prepares for the 52nd Broken Hill Community Credit Union St Patrick’s Day Races to be held on 18th March.

The annual St Patrick’s Day Races have been a yearly tradition for many past and present Broken Hill residents. A time to gather with friends and family, the event incorporates horse racing, field fashions and food. The city expects to have an influx of visitors from Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne as well as many smaller cities and neighbouring communities.

Details of all St Pat’s events can be found on the website:

Out of the Ordinary Outback recommends that travellers plan carefully for their stay during this time. Accommodation venues are booking quickly. We have limited availabilities at our Broken Hill venues, the Argent Hotel and the Tourist Lodge.

Tri State Safaris has a number of tours available during this time. Prescheduled tours will depart before and after the weekend for visitors extending their stay.
