Recreation and Sports
Quilpie Golf Club
Quilpie Golf Club is an exciting course to play on. With 18 holes, over 5300 metres, sand greens, water hazards and fully maintained fairways, this is one course any golfer needs to visit. Being volunteer run, managed and maintained, you won’t find it manned through the week, but you are more than welcome to have a hit. Green fees are $5.00 when the club is closed and this can be paid via an honesty slot at the Captains Office. Our season runs from March to October and visitors are more than welcome to join us for a game on the weekend. “See You At Golf”.
Quilpie Bowls Club
Quilpie Club on the western end of town boasts 7 rinks of beautifully maintained greens, a must visit for any bowling enthusiast. But that’s not all it offers. Bar, restaurant, meals and a great outback atmosphere compliments this Club to the fullest. Come for dinner, bowls, pokies or just have a drink with the locals...it’s a “must visit” while you’re staying in Quilpie. Quilpie Club - The Place To Be.
Toompine Progress Association
Toompine Progress Association holds an annual Gun Shoot Competition on the Easter long weekend and are at present holding an event on a monthly basis. They welcome non-members to join in the fun and competition of Trap Shooting, so why not give it a try?
Channel Country Senior Rugby League
“Quilpie Magpies” - This is one name you don’t want to forget! Quilpie’s Senior and Junior rugby league teams both hold this name and during footy season you may hear the “Magpies” chant from the crowd. If you’re visiting the area and the Quilpie Magpies have a home game, then you must join the locals at John Waugh Park to see the boys in action...it’s pretty impressive.
Quilpie Polocrosse Club with their stunning horses and heaps of talent is a must see. Each region holds one carnival and this year Quilpie are proud to host the Outback Zone Championships on the 30th June and 1st July. If you’re in Quilpie during this time we recommend that you head on down to Bulloo Park to see these talented horses and riders action.
Quilpie Pony Club
Quilpie Pony Club is for our younger riders mostly just starting out and learning the finer points of horse care and control. Programs are offered in dressage, eventing, show jumping, mounted games and vaulting etc. During "unmounted" meetings members learn about feeding, shoeing, veterinary care, and other areas of horse management. Under adult supervision, the more experienced Pony Club members instruct and assist younger members.
Quilpie, Eromanga and Adavale each hold an annual rodeo incorporating both senior and junior events. Put at least one of these events on your “must do” list to experience the excitement and atmosphere of bull riding in the country.
