What are the Ewan Races?

To quote from the North Queensland Register on 10 October 2002

“from Thursday night’s fancy dress party for the kids that attracted record entries to Friday morning’s entertaining bush poetry bash through to the two afternoons of highly competitive racing, and two nights of rocking and rolling, the Ewan Races had it all and that’s not taking into account the huge get togethers centred on the many permanent and semi permanent camp sites that give Ewan and others like it that special appeal.” 

In addition to the many private camps that have been established over the years, the Club provides public camping facilities (hot showers, septic toilets and bar-b-q). Patrons are encouraged to camp for the weekend and enjoy not only the racing but also all the social activities that make Ewan a true country racing experience.
The Ewan Races are conducted on the Ewan Race Track which is situated on the banks of Stockyard Creek, approximately half way between Charters Towers and Greenvale on the Gregory Development Road.  The race meeting is conducted on the middle weekend of the September school holidays, which is usually the last weekend in September.
