Round up the history of Warwick's rodeo

WARWICK residents will have the opportunity to learn about the history of one of the town's biggest events this weekend.

The Australian Rodeo Heritage Centre will open its doors on Sunday as part of the Warwick Tourism and Events Heritage weekend.

Australian Professional Rodeo Association rodeo administrator Steve Hilton said there would be live displays there.

"We'll have some roping events on Sunday," he said.

"There will also be a mechanical cow.

"So there will be more than just the heritage displays."

Australian Rodeo Heritage Centre events co-ordinator Warren Ryan said it was a chance for people to learn about all aspects of the rodeo.

"It's a great opportunity for people to wonder through," Mr Ryan said.

"The centre's got all the information on cowboys and the history of the rodeo.

"We're really excited about this Sunday."

The centre will be open from 10am-2pm this Sunday with a small entry fee.
