Farmers & Graziers Squatters Cup

Feature race day

Port Augusta, Port Augusta

Sunday, 23rd June, 2019
11:00am - 5:00pm

Farmers & Graziers Squatters Cup is a race day celebrating rural businesses, farmers and graziers from across the state, featuring the historic Squatters Cup.

The proud tradition of the Squatters Cup continues with the first Squatters Cup being presented in 1930 donated by Mr. F.C. Christophersen and G. Lonsdale.

Thanks to our sponsors of the day, this race meeting is free admission to all patrons.

The kids will be entertained with the R.I.C.E Kids Activity Centre and face painting to keep them busy.

The Dick Langsford Betting Ring will be home to our pop-up shops once more with our very own milliner, Jo Honan from Bonnetry returning; and we welcome back the SA Country Women's Association, with their recipe books, tea towels and preserves.

The Farmers & Graziers Squatters Cup has become an annual event. Port Augusta’s central location to farming and pastoralist regions makes it a shopping and social hub for many regional families. A day at the races is an ideal way to for the rural families to spend time together.

We would like to thank our sponsors for their generous support of the day:

  • Wirrealpa Station Squatters Cup

  • Landmark Port Augusta
  • Elders Port Augusta
  • Tech Wool Trading

Come and celebrate with us at The Races. There's nothing like a race around the Paddock!
