Yarra Glen was a sight for cowboys, bucking broncos and mullets on Saturday as visitors took to the Yarra Valley Rodeo on Saturday 18 January.

The annual event has become a hit for Yarra Valley locals as the annual event draws thousands of visitors each year.

The rodeo held a best mullet competition which helped raise funds for Zoos Victoria’s bushfire emergency wildlife fund. Cockatoo resident Nick ‘Hill Billy’ Trigg took out the honour.

Unfortunately one competitor sustained an injury, requiring them to be airlifted to hospital.

The Yarra Valley Rodeo raised funds for Rett Syndrome Awareness. Check out Mail photographer Greg Carrick’s best pictures from the day.
