Australian Hand Cane Cutting Championships

Home Hill, Burdekin Area

2 June 2018 - 

The Australian Hand Cane Cutting Championships is a test of skill and endurance, with thousands of dollars in prize money up for grabs for competitors. Bring the family to experience history coming back to life, in the sugar capital of Australia- the Burdekin region.

Spectators will have the opportunity to walk through a paddock of burnt sugarcane - an unusual and memorable experience for many city dwellers. The dirty, back-breaking work of a by-gone era, the expertise of the 'old-timers', and the excitement of the 'Cut, Top and Load' will be on show again at this iconic Australian event.

Sit back and enjoy live entertainment, wander through vintage machinery from yesteryear, take part in a workshop or two, enjoy a bite to eat from one of their many food providers or have a cold drink from the bar. There is something to do for the whole family with free children’s craft and activities, an animal farm, jumping castle and mini train rides.

The Australian Hand Cane Cutting Championships are held at the Home Hill Showgrounds, about one and a quarter hour's drive south of Townsville, and 15 minutes from Ayr.
