Thousands of people hit the bitumen and eventual dirt roads for the 60th annual Louth races, and a night or two under the stars.

Over 4000 people from across Australia travel to the tiny community in the middle of remote north-west NSW that swells from fewer than 50 to thousands for one weekend every year for one of NSWs most iconic outback race meets.
