Crow's Nest, Queensland- the home of worm racing in Australia.
Running three race programs each year,
Crow's Nest has to have worm racing covered. Called "
down-to-earth sport", worm racing has got a wriggle on in
the picturesque town just north of Toowoomba.
Crow's Nest Community
Festival, worm races are held at the Lions Club function, and of course at the annual Crow's Nest
YOU are invited to race a worm
on Crow's Nest Day.
Either bring your own, or we have
specially bred and trained racing worms for you to use.
As many people you talk to after the
worm races will not believe that you raced a worm,
are awarded to all participants.
