Dean Lewins: Camel Cup for AAP
The Marree Australian Camel Cup is an annual event, organised each year to raise funds to support essential services in the isolated outback town of Marree.
It is also an acknowledgement of the amazing contributions made by the Afghan Cameleers and their descendants, many of whom still reside in the district.
Upto 500 people came to Marree race track, almost 700 klms north of Adelaide to watch and bet on the 13 races held this year including the Australian Camel Cup.
