The championship has many divisions including the novice section which anyone can enter on the day, the childrens and adults competitions plus the Bullock Whip section.   The Australian Bullock Whip title is held in a different state each year and will sure to be a highlight at the NCMC Casino Beef Week.  

The current Australian & World Champion, Daniel Wicks from Gunnedah, will be trying his best to regain the title at this year’s event. He has some tough competition from Georgia Pitman of Moree and Simon Martin of Tasmania.  The Australian Junior Champion Henry Pitman will be looking to take out another win in the tournament’s Junior Freestyle Divison.

It will be a jampacked day with competitors being judged on presentation, accuracy and ten individual whipcracking routines.  President Steve Wicks says “AWPA members are really looking forward to competing at the NCMC Casino Beef Week. We are passionate about showcasing Australian culture and heritage through our involvement with the festival.”
