Australia's most famous outback horse racing carnival is back after a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Birdsville races attract thousands of spectators, trainers and horses from all over Australia, providing an economic and tourism boom.
In this context, Beardsville Race Club Vice President Gary Brook said the event had a significant impact on society and the tourism sector.
These races generate $2.5 million to $3 million in domestic economic impact, he added.
It is worth noting that tickets will go out on May 2 to celebrate the 140th anniversary in September.
