The Bangalow 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. Don Page MP is a regular participant in the celebrity race and the oldest participant is claimed to be “Bangalow Bill” at 85 years of age. Cart categories range from traditional, home-grown, professional and novelty which once featured the amazing Titanic Billy Cart, complete with the Iceberg.

Thank you to our community & corporate partners:
