Big crowd expected for outback yabby races

Hundreds of people are expected to line the main street of Windorah, in south-west Queensland tonight, to cheer on yabbies racing as part of an unusual outback event.

Forty yabbies will take part in the town's annual International Yabby Races.

Jeannie Reynolds from the Windorah Visitor Information Centre says the yabbies will race over a metre, but it could be slow going.

"Yes well we close the street there, or the block in front of the hotel, and the track's marked out on the bitumen on the main street," she said.

"We usually get about 600 or 700 people there for the yabby races.

"We've realised now that you've got keep the crowd back away from them because if you get too close to them, they'll just turn around and go back again."
