COUNTRY RODEO

Arising from the stockman’s skill in capturing feral or wild cattle, public “rough riding” events like bullock-throwing took place in Victoria during the 1880s. Travelling rodeos provided displays of riding bucking horses and bullocks, whipcracking, performing dogs and ponies and rope-spinning.
American-style contests of clowns, ropers and trick riders were added to the programme to promote more public interest. By the late 1960s Australian roughriders were known as cowboys and rode broncs instead of buckjumpers and R.M. Williams clothing came to the market.
In 1968, the Tamworth branch of the Modern Country Music Association ran a talent quest which may have been the predecessor of the Tamworth Country Music Festival, which nowadays is one of the most unique in the world. Thousands stroll down the city’s tree lined Peel Street and 3 blocks are closed to traffic over the Festival and down the entire length are buskers, of whom, some have been coming to the same spot for years. You’ll hear some of the best and worst performers in the nation! There are individuals, groups and bands, all ages, some shy, some flamboyant, playing all kinds of music. You might pause to listen to an aboriginal country rock band from Arnhem Land, while just a few metres away there’s an old yodeller from Bourke, singing Slim Dusty songs, both competing for audience with a crooning kid with a blue guitar from Tasmania. And don’t imagine for a moment that any of these buskers are no-hopers! Kasey Chambers, Troy Cassar-Daley and Keith Urban are just a few of the stars who have trodden the Peel Street pavements as youngsters awaiting that pivotal event – the glamorous Golden Guitar Awards

  • AUSTRALIA ANIMAL ROAD HAZARD SIGN

    AUSTRALIA ANIMAL ROAD HAZARD SIGN – if you’re going to drive in Australia you’ll need to be aware that Australia has a large number of animals and birds that are big enough to cause a danger on the road! There are 2 versions - one with 5 road signs on it and the other with 6 road signs - please select your preference from the drop down menu This plate comes standard as completely flat and non-embossed but for a little more cost we are able to give it a pressed out embossed border, so you have a choice. Please select your preference from the drop down menu. These novelty number  plates are made from high quality aluminium and the artwork applied by a dye sublimation process with a lovely gloss finish. They measure 37 x 13 cm, exactly the same as the traditional fully embossed type of plate and look just like our other Aussie made novelty number plates; even the mounting holes are in exactly the same positions, so they can easily be hung on display indoors or outdoors. One great advantage the flat non-embossed version is that owing to the absence of embossed border, and being just under 1 mm thick, it’s quite flexible and will flex about 10 cm from the centre, so can be mounted on curved surfaces. Each embossed rim style plate is sealed in a clear plastic sleeve, and each flat non-embossed plate is shrink-sealed in plastic film, so both types are ready for retail display, plus we offer the option of fixing them to a cardboard display card, so they can then be hung and displayed on the same display racks that are used for the other Aussie size plates we sell. To see what the display card looks like please click here For protection during delivery we use extra packing materials to ensure they arrive in tip-top condition If you would like plates made to your own design, we can easily do this for you. Virtually anything you want can be created with our modern digital equipment.  The key is good art, and we can do ANY GRAPHIC!    ANY DESIGN!    ANY COLOUR! For more details on creating a plate to your design please click here Important note about images we provide : Just as we sometimes see that “pricing is subject to change without notice”, so too are “designs subject to change without notice”. In 99.99% of cases, what you see on Dixie’s website or brochure is what you get. However, there are the odd times when designs have changed in some small way (eg: maybe a logo moves to a different location on the item, or the colour changes). Sometimes this information doesn’t always trickle down until the new designs are manufactured and shipped to Dixie. We hope this is helpful and understandable.
