Pauline Hanson heads back to Birdsville
Senator Pauline Hanson is heading back to the Birdsville Races to show her support for the historic event and catch up with the locals over a few drinks.
"This is one of the biggest events on the race calendar and people come from across the country to have a great long weekend," Senator Hanson said.
"The Birdsville Races is one of those bucket list places to see. You'll have people drive out in their 4x4's to their private jets, but the one thing everyone has in common is they all sleep in a tent - me included".
"Birdsville has one of the country’s most iconic pubs in the country and I can't wait for another Birdsville pie from the bakery."
“I missed last year’s event due to being freshly elected, but I don't think I missed much due to the weather. This year, the sun will shine and the dust will be flying.”
“I'm still waiting to see if I get an invitation to be ring girl for Fred Brophy's boxing tent again this year.”
Senator Hanson also expressed her admiration for the amount of funds the event raised for The Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Senator Hanson urged anyone looking to make their own donation to The Royal Flying Doctor Service to visit their website and give generously.
Senator Hanson will be arriving in Birdsville on Thursday.
