Boorowa

The モRunning of the Sheepヤ down the main street of Boorowa during the Irish Woolfest often reminds visitors of the モRunning of the Bullsヤ in Pamplona. Boorowa's Irish Heritage is another reason for celebration at this award winning festival. This event takes place on the Sunday of the October long weekend and is fun for all the family. Located on the Lachlan Valley Way only an hour and a quarter north of Canberra and three and a half hours from Sydney, Boorowa is a vibrant country town which is the place to visit for a True Country Experience. Boorowa's wide main street is reminiscent of a bygone era and has been transformed with beautiful old world lighting, exquisite paving and spectacular roses. Immerse yourself in Boorowa's heritage by following the shamrocks on the Shamrock Trail where each building on the map is depicted with a brass plaque and an explanation of its heritage. Or take a stroll along the Riverwalk where you might be lucky enough to see a platypus, or see ducks in the pond. Boorowa duck pond is one of the three places in the world with a water jet. Boorowa, Canberra and Geneva. Many shops are retained in their original state as they were in the days of the emporium. St Patrick's Catholic Church resembles a miniature cathedral with its Italian marble and stunning stained glass windows one of which is dedicated to the Irish Liberator Daniel O'Connell. Indulge yourself with lunch or dinner at one of Boorowa's cafes or restaurants. Visit our excellent galleries, with paintings, art and craft and collectibles for that perfect gift with the country flavour. Organise a group to take a special packaged day tour of Boorowa. Visit Frogmore where Sarah Jane Country Crafts and the Spring Valley Farm which grows stunning flowers have their home or take a drive to Rugby, Reids Flat and Rye Park, the home of the Old School Retreat.

Boorowa: Events

Irish Woolfest


The Running of the Sheep at the Boorowa Community Bank Irish Woolfest has been likened to the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona. It is not to be compared to the danger of the bulls as these sheep are cute and cuddly, but certainly as visually exciting. Visitors love the sheepdog component when they see the trusty kelpies leaping on and off the sheep's backs as they race down the street guided by Farmer Ashley on his four wheel motorbike.

A spiritual thanksgiving for the fine wool of the district follows an old-style ritual shearing for the annual Blessing of the Fleece. Sheep events display the sheep in all their glory.

Irish bands and dancers create the Irish spirit whilst top Irish performers appear on the main stage.
