Uluru Camel Racing Club - Great Community Events and Experiences.
Uluru Camel Racing Club
Uluru Camel Racing Club Incorporated (UCRC) welcomes you to the 2018 Uluru Camel Cup. The Camel Cup as it’s known around our home town Yulara has been an annual event since 2012. It has formed part of many great community events including Outback Week and Outback Fest and has been a significant contributor to the local economy from both a financial perspective and a ‘feel good’ bringing everyone together- money can’t buy experience.
This year Uluru Camel Racing Club proudly hosts this dual tourism award winning experience as its key event for 2018. Our aim is to welcome visitors, friends and family from all corners of the globe to the heart of Australia, to truly celebrate what it means to live, breathe and experience the outback. We acknowledge the contribution and support of many local volunteers and business partners and of course our wonderful sponsors who really help us make this race day come alive.
Once again, welcome to our home town of Yulara, gateway to the world heritage listed Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park and we’ll see you around at the farm!

History of the Races

The first Uluru Camel Cup was held on a Wednesday “Hump Day” in 2012 it was largely attended by local Yulara residents and was a huge success, the winning Camel was ‘Lazy Dazy’.
