The tiny town of Louth (population 50) sits on the banks of the Darling River and came into existence in 1856 when a pub was built to cater for the passing river trade. Today the population expands to thousands when the Louth Turf Club holds their annual race meeting in August. The event had become so popular that the local airfield usually hosts upwards of fifty aeroplanes. Louth with a cemetery that holds a monument to love. Louth's small cemetery has the Matthews Monument, a tribute to love and tragedy, which projects an impressive beam of light during sunset each day - has to be seen to be believed.

Louth Races

Situated on the banks of the Darling River 100 kilometres south-west of Bourke and 132 kilometres north-west of Cobar, Louth has an undeniable reputation for staging a great annual race meeting that keeps crowds coming back ... year after year.

While racing in the village dates back to 1880, instead of horse and buggy, today's racegoers are more likely to arrive in air-conditioned buses and cars, or by aeroplane. However, their great bush hospitality remains the same.

And while racegoers love the sheer isolation of Louth - the colourful bush characters and the experience of watching the horses thunder past the winning post in a cloud of dust - the action isn't just confined to the Saturday. Instead, there are four days of entertainment and activities, so come along, join in the fun and embrace outback country racing at its best.
