The Milparinka Gymkhana is held annually on the second Saturday of the NSW July School Holidays. The day long event takes place on the Milparinka Sports Grounds, just on the north side of Milparinka, alongside the Evelyn Creek.
The gymkhana is a truly bush family day affair, with riders bringing their horses from local station properties as well as some distance away in Queensland and South Australia.
The riders, aged from about two years to, well, who knows, compete in a range of events including novelties such as the bending race, or flat races such as the Milparinka Cup.
All days meals are available, and at night, after prize presentation, entertainment to get everyone up and dancing. Visitors are welcome to join locals at the Milparinka Gymkhana each July.
