The iconic Bangalow Billycart Derby is back on Sunday 18 September 2022!

You can download the registration form and rules so you’re prepared for the big day!

Bangalow Lions Club President Greg Nash said that after a 2 year hiatus he was thrilled the event was back.

“After COVID, flooding and general exhaustion we can’t wait to enjoy this wonderful community occasion,” Greg said.

“It’ll be our first major village event for over two long years and we can’t wait.

“So, start building a winning billycart for our daredevil kids and let’s get excited!

“We have race categories for everyone:

  • youngsters (5-7, 8-11, 12-15 years)
  • parent and child
  • open
  • junior
  • tag team
  • mothers
  • schools challenge
  • sporting clubs
  • celebrity
  • novelty

“With just over a month to go, I urge people to dust off their billycarts and polish those wheels.  Maybe even head down to the Men’s Shed to see what they are building.

“Registration starts from 7am outside the Bangalow Hotel, races start at 9am and street parade at 12.30pm.

“The event first started in 1995 as a celebration that our town had a main road bypass – it’s since grown into a community event that really puts Bangalow on the map for all the right reasons.

“Similar to previous years we are pleased to combine with the Bangalow Public School’s Annual Fair – The Pit Stop.

“I’m told there will be some delicious food on offer as well as rides, activities, games and the famous cake stall!

“See you at the finish line!”

The Bangalow Lions Club is proud to organise the event with the generous support of Summerland Credit Union and many local businesses.
