Theodore

Theodore is located on the Dawson River 105 kilometres south west of Biloela. Theodore is named to honour the former Queensland Premier, Mr E H Theodore. It's palm-lined roads are quite spectacular and the town is an impressive look-alike to the street plan of Canberra. It is the local tale that the town was architecturally designed by Walter Burley Griffin in the early 1920s before he went on to design Australia's capital city, Canberra. Today Theodore is the service centre for important irrigation and agricultural industries. Popular spots to visit at Theodore include the community managed Hotel-Motel, the Dawson River weir, Rose's Garden, Junction Park, Glenmoral Gorge and the nearby historic hand built 'flagged' road, used by bullock wagons in the nineteenth century.

Theodore: Events

Theodore Spindles and Spurs Campdraft


Distinctively Australian, campdrafts are a ritual of the drover, harking back to the mid-1880s and passed down through generations.

Hard, fast and unforgiving, good natured gamesmanship between mates around the campfire sparked the now furious campdraft national competition that honours the elite in mustering and drafting skills.

Held in townships large and small right across the country, the heats are a crowd favourite as riders and their horses pitch their skills against man, beast and clock.

Not a sport for the faint hearted, you have to have plenty of bull dust in your veins to want to try your chances at a title. But stock men, women and children still line up to do just that.

Balance, timing and strength are on full show as riders cut one bull, steer or stag away from the herd and guide them into the camp (arena). Suddenly, everything happens at whip cracking speed, horse and rider with only seconds to guide the animal through a course and figure eights and then through the gates (flags).

Held at showgrounds and recreation reserves, onsite catering and camping are available throughout the meets.
