Crazy Sporting Contests
[ more contests ]
'Yabbie' is the term for freshwater crustaceans found in dams in many places around Australia. Many young kids grew up catching them with a piece of string and some meat. In a few places they even race them, such as in the small Victorian town of Talbot, where they hold an annual Yabbie Festival. Races are also held in Kajabbi and Windorah in Queensland.
