Ben’s Chicken Racing

Every evening from 5.15pm at the Royal Carrangarra Hotel you can meet Ben the ‘chook trainer’ and his egg-citing ‘Ladies’.

Ben will introduce each of the ‘girls’ and provide a summary of their current racing form. If you can bid high enough at the auction, you can own a brightly coloured chicken for the duration of the race.

Eight hens will compete, chasing a little cart filled with tasty delicacies around the course for four laps before the champion chick crosses the finish line.

Hilarious fun, but the best part is the chooks are auctioned off to raise money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Ben’s chickens race seven days a week from May through to October.
