If you're into bull riding, or you're just an inquisitive tourist, this is the place to go. No need for the feint hearted to apply, as real life, modern day cowboys wrestle with 800Kg beasts. It's not always pretty, but is an exciting spectacle. There are free practise rides every Wednesday and Friday at 7:00PM, as well as regular competition rides throughout the year. Check the web or the hotel for schedules. Part of a hotel complex, meals can be taken ringside if you wish.

Want a true cattle town Australian experience? Head down to the Great Western Hotel. I cannot tell you how surprised I was to see a full sized Rodeo with real bulls in the ring. If you go down on a Wednesday you can watch the students do their practice.

Great food and great beer.

Real bull riding!
This is a great big sprawling Queens;land hotel with bars, a steakhouse and full on bull riding arena. The arena has tiered seating, proper rodeo cattle yards and, if you are there on the right night, a bull riding competition.
Rockhampton apparently has a youing cowboy development program and these young guys and others compete in organised bull rides twice a month and have training/practice on other nights.
We simply could not believe it when we saw this arena. We wa;lked into the pub and the barman asked if we'd like to see the arena - "what arena"? He said to walk thrpough that door and there it was was! Still can't believe it. Go have a look.
