The Australian Bushmen’s Campdraft and Rodeo Association
The Australian Bushmen’s Campdraft and Rodeo Association (ABCRA) is a non-profit Campdraft and Rodeo organisation that was formed in 1946 for the purpose of co-ordinating and assisting affiliated committees to conduct their events.
Now in its 68th year, the ABCRA has a rich history with its heritage strongly built by the ‘man on the land’ and it has grown to be uniquely Australia’s only and largest organisation administering the sports of Campdrafting and Rodeo under one entity.
ABCRA boasts a growing annual membership currently with over 4,300 full members and in excess of 3,000 day members.
Of course we are also extremely proud of our 185 affiliated clubs and associations who conduct in excess of 290 events annually across Australia – events which attract thousands of competitors and fans alike. Our top competitors travel year round to accumulate points and prize money to qualify for the season finale, the ABCRA National Finals.
A point worthy of noting, at the time of our most recent survey, our affiliated committees inject in excess of 1.7million dollars into local economies throughout Australia in support of hospitals, infrastructure projects and in a number of cases other sporting organisations, not to mention charities specifically supporting health and emergency services.
