Deni Ute Muster
The NSW Riverina town of Deniliquin is the Ute Capital of the World (laying claim to the title after that first Ute Muster in 1998. In celebration of the first event, the town erected a Ute on the Pole - the next year a fabulous vintage ute was stunningly mosaicked. Both of these attractions along with the famous Deni Ute Muster Entrance gates are a must for “selfie” loving tourists.
Today, the event annually attracts approx. 20,000 people of all ages to celebrate all things laconically Australian and the icon of the Ute. The Festival has amazing community support; more than 1,000 volunteers mobilise each year to help put on the event and after each event, close to $100,000 is donated back to community groups.
Photograph the event including not only utes but the other activities that have made it an iconic festival for the whole family.
