Myrtleford Golden Spurs Rodeo

Boxing Day Wednesday 26th December 2018

Myrtleford is located 273km northeast of Melbourne and only 50km from Hume Freeway and has held the Myrtleford Golden Spurs Rodeo on Boxing Day since 1954. The town, positioned in the northern foothills of the Mt Buffalo Range, serves as a gateway to Mt Buffalo National Park and its popular ski resorts.

The Myrtleford Golden Spurs Rodeo is the second longest running Victorian rodeo and the first of the summer circuit. Myrtleford is regarded as having one of the most spectacular rodeo arenas in Australia. The Stockman's Hall of Fame in Longreach displays photos of the Myrtleford Rodeo and recognises its place in the history of rodeos in Australia.

This year’s program promises to be bigger and better than ever with Cowboys and Cowgirls from across the country competing for Australian Professional Rodeo Association championship points and the coveted Golden Spurs. This year will include: breakaway roping, barrel racing, steer wrestling, bareback riding, bull riding, with dinner Break entertainment by Steve Eales and Reggie Bowman known as Stringers see www.steveeales.com (More details below)
