We were out of the gate and across the line in just 4 weeks for a complete rebuild of the Birdsville Races website, and a mere 6 weeks to complete the Birdsville Races Roadies ‘sister site’ following. The former showcases the iconic outback races, while the latter provides a membership-based platform for those looking for companions to make the journey.

One for the Roadies
Getting to Birdsville is no easy task – but that’s half the fun. A mere 1900km from Sydney and 1500km from Brisbane, much of it unsealed, many travellers choose to do the adventure in convoy. The Birdsville Races Roadies platform was built to facilitate these convoys amongst a wider group, reducing the barriers to race attendance.
