Marree Camel Cup - Marree, SA

Marree Camel Cup

Marree Camel Cup is an annual event, held in early July each year. The town comes to life during this event. Marree is the home of the legendary Afghan cameleers, and this event gives visitors the opportunity to experience their unique outback culture.

Catch a very South Aussie spectacle as the camels kick up their hooves and pick up some serious speed in pursuit of the Marree Cup. The strength and resilience of the cameleers is recognised in a special tribute during the Marree Camel Cup Races.

You can watch the thrills and spills of 13 camel races, see Afghan descendants in traditional dress, taste their food, visit the photo and memorabilia exhibition, take a camel ride and enjoy the live music. For the kids there are novelty events on offer including pony rides, donkey races, and a lolly toss.
