It's a race day where akubras outnumber fascinators and you're as likely to find people sleeping on a swag as in the hotel.
Birdsville Races are Aussie as, set in the tiny township on the edge of the Simpson Desert with a population of 115.
Birdsville Race Club vice president Gary Brook said it was worth the trip to see it yourself.
"Seeing the plume of red dust and colour of the jockey's silks against the barren landscape as the horses thunder around the dirt track is a spectacular site. It really is a bucket list experience," Brook said.
As they prepare for their 134th race weekend on September 2-3, let's take a look back at the fashion, fillies and frothing tinnies.
