Fashions from afar



Racing Queensland (RQ) has launched "Fashions from afar" for country racegoers off the track for the second consecutive year. RQ's Fashion from afar competition will celebrate the age-old tradition of trackside style and celebrate modern millinery trends and head-to-toe style dressing and grooming.

Fashions from afar will run in conjunction with Battle of the Bush qualifiers around Queensland, with winners offered the opportunity to compete in the final in Brisbane on Tattersall's Tiara Day, Saturday, June 25 2022. The competition will be inclusive of male and female categories.
