Famous for its Dunny Derby, the 26th-anniversary of the festival comes with a bumper lineup in 2021 including major events such as the Outback Century Cycle Challenge, Outback Iron Man and Women, Sunset Charity Gala Dinner, as well as daily outback kids fun and a swag full of live entertainment.
The festival is busy preparing for its busiest and biggest festival yet.
Festival Director Robyn Stephens said they had plenty of interest from travellers all over Australia eagerly awaiting to visit Winton for the festival.
"Now they can finally get their hands on the full festival program and tickets, and really start planning their way to Winton," Ms Stephens said.
