2021 Eastern Australia Storms and Floods – updates from the Australian Government

Pussycat Bore Campdraft and Gymkhana in the NT

Our NT Regional Recovery Officer Jane Mack attended the Pussy Cat Bore Campdraft and Gymkhana last weekend, where we were also a proud sponsor. With fewer events scheduled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, large numbers of Territorians turned up.  

“It was a fantastic weekend,” Jane said, “There were hundreds of competitors from all across the Territory. It was a time when people can have a break from their work, catch up with friends and have some fun.”

The 2020 program included a traditional campdraft program, horsemanship challenges, kids’ gymkhana and rodeo over four days of competition.

The Drought and Flood Agency sponsors community events in drought and flood-impacted areas because it’s important that people who are doing it tough get a chance to have a break and unwind with their family and friends.

If you’re organising a community event in regional Australia and in need of sponsorship, we’d be interested in hearing from you – contact your local Regional Recovery Officer to find out more.
