About Brisbane Billycart Championships 2018
Brisbane’s biggest billycart championships are held on a grass track and kids of all ages (including adults) from all over Brisbane are invited to make and race their own billycart. Otherwise you may borrow one of 20 loan carts – at no charge.
Great news for 4 and 5 year olds – they’re back in 2018 to experience driving a billycart, down the slope, about 15 metres. These young ones will be released by hand on the grass slope below the launch ramps. Their races will be non-competitive, just experiencing the fun of driving a billycart.
The championships are at the Carindale Recreation Reserve. It’s part of the Green Heart Fair. Admission to the Green Heart Fair and watch the Billycarts is FREE!

Driver Registration Fee $10 per driver.
Carindale Rotary has constructed a new ramp system which will launch carts from on the top of the hill. Organisers expect carts to reach higher speeds than previously.
Age groups for 2018 are:
4 and 5 years
6 to 8 years
9 to 12 years
13 years and above
