Do you love a bit of country over the weekend? Mud Bulls & Music is taking place this year for the last time at scenic Landcruiser Mountain Park, Jimna and you’re invited!
We’ve been a strong supporter of this event and while we’re sad that we now no longer have the excuse to ‘work the weekend’ out at Jimna, we also know that the organisers of Mud Bulls & Music are absolutely determined to make its last year its best.
We are a long-time sponsor of Landcruiser Mountain Park and many of us have attended Mud Bulls & Music with our families and friends since it started 14 years ago. Here’s some of our favourite events:
The old rally cross track has had an upgrade to have new jumps and new starting positions, and it’s always a rush watching two vehicles take off and send the dirt flying as they battle neck and neck to come in first. The jumps send them airborne and you can see the cab bouncing while the suspension and tyres take the brunt of the impact force, all the while speeding towards the next loop.
Purely for speed, this race sees two trucks starting on the opposite sides of a wet track, which features fast straight lines and unforgiving corners. They have to beat not just each other but the clock too, making for great spectating.

The meet ‘n’ greet takes place a bit earlier than the actual Mud Bulls & Music event on Wednesday, 29 Oct 2014. It’s a relaxed, sit-down-in-your-camp-chair-while-pulling-cold-ones-out-of-your-esky type of performance, aimed at letting you enjoy good music in good company. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to cheer with the crowd during the night performances over the weekend though, from some of Australia’s best-known country singers including Lee Kernaghan, Beccy Cole and Adam Harvey.
You can’t have an event named ‘Mud Bulls & Music’ without some real bulls there. This rodeo, presented by the Gill brothers, is always a crowd-puller and it’s given us the chance to take priceless videos of our colleagues falling off various four-legged beasts to circulate round the office on Friday arvo. We recommend you don’t visit the XXXX Club Country Bar before you try riding a bucking bull though!
There are additional events like the ute muster (featuring special guest judge Roothy), bush poets brekky, the Postie Bike Challenge, a farm animal show for the kids and Fashions of the Festival too so there’s plenty to see and do while you’re there.
If you’re attending Mud Bulls & Music, don’t forget to come and say g’day to us at the Cooper Tires stall and register for your chance to win a set of tyres worth up to $1,500! Call us on 1300 COOPER to find out what tyres would suit your needs.
