Get your cart ready!

Competitors of all ages will race down the main street of Bangalow on Sunday 19 May 2019 for the annual Bangalow Billy Cart Derby

The Billy Cart Derby is a wonderful example of a community event because there are no barriers to entry.  It showcases good old fashioned fun regardless of age or social status.  Everyone can take part whether as individuals, families, workplaces or schools.  This year we expect many entries, showing the strength of the Derby as it embraces an even wider reach in our thriving community.

There are races for everyone – boys and girls from five years of age, through to “opens” and celebrities.  Cart categories range from traditional, home-grown, professional and novelty which once featured the amazing Titanic Billy Cart, complete with the Iceberg.

The main focus of the day is not the speed of the entries, but family fun for participants and spectators.  The Grand Parade is a highlight,  featuring local bands, vintage cars, schools, local clubs, scouts and celebrities.

Racing will start at 9am, so get your cart ready, with all participants marshalled from 7am in the Bangalow Hotel.

Byron Bay Farm Cottages are just a few minutes drive from Bangalow.
