Our Chicks are off and Racing!

Ready, set, go…….and they’re off and racing!

The racing season has come early to Tambo this year, with the early arrival of Easter chicken racing has commenced. And our Ben’s Hens can hardly contain their eggcitement.

As you would realise, these days Tambo Teddies isn’t just about teddy bears; we’re also home to Ben’s Hens, our delightful collection of sheepskin chickens that are as cuddly as they are adorable. With names like Apricot Chicken, Ginga Ninja, Barcoo Blue, and the Hulk, our feathered friends are adding an extra dose of whimsy to the Tambo Teddies experience.

With racing commencing it must be time to head to Outback Queensland and enjoy a bit of whimsical Tambo adventure.

Your journey must begin at Tambo Teddies, our charming, quaint little shop nestled in the middle of town. Stepping inside, you are greeted by rows of cuddly companions, each handcrafted from Australian wool. From classic bears to quirky, colourful characters, there’s a teddy here for every taste.

And amidst the array of teddy bears, you will discover Ben’s Hens—brightly coloured sheepskin chickens crafted with the same care and attention to detail. Among them are Apricot Chicken, Ginga Ninja, Barcoo Blue, and the Hulk, each with its own unique personality and charm.

As the days are now growing longer and the temperatures are cooling, April is an ideal time to visit. And there’s no better place to kick off your holiday festivities than at the iconic Royal Carrangarra Hotel where Ben’s Chicken Racing takes place.

As the real chickens take their places at the starting line, adorned in their vibrant racing colours and cheered on by spectators, the atmosphere crackles with excitement. And then, with a flurry of feathers and a chorus of clucks, the race is on!

From Apricot Chicken’s lightning-fast sprint to Ginga Ninja’s agile manoeuvres, each chicken brings its own unique flair to the track (some even head in the wrong direction!).

And while you can’t take a ‘live’ one home with you, you can pop instore an purchase your very own winning character from the Tambo Teddies range of Ben’s Hens.

So, if you find yourself craving adventure and whimsy, why not venture off the beaten path and discover the magic of Tambo? Whether you’re cuddling up with a teddy bear, cheering on a chicken racer, or simply soaking in the beauty of the Outback, Tambo promises an unforgettable journey filled with laughter, joy, and endless surprises.
