The Burdekin Grower Race Day at the Burdekin Race Club, Home Hill is a real eye opener. It is like the Melbourne Cup for tropical north Queensland. The fashions are amazing. And everyone gets to take home as much locally grown produce as can be carried – fabulous fresh melons, tomatoes, capsicum, corn and much much more. Eight of us went from the caravan park and a great day was had by all (especially Bob with 2 winners and 2 seconds out of 6 races).
