Cane Toad Races

Cane Toad Races: The cane toad was introduced to Australia last century to help control the cane beetle, but unfortunately the toad thrived to the detriment of local wildlife. Most people want to get rid of them, but in Northern Queensland they have found another use for them - racing.

You can find a regular race each week at the Ironbar Bar and Restaurant in Port Douglas, or at the annual Maclean Cane Harvest Festival.
