The Woodhill billy cart derby conjures up images of an era long gone, when problems were more simple and life was taken at an easier pace. At Woodhill Billy Cart Derby, kids swap iPads and Xboxes for fresh air and adventure.

But it’s not just about racing. We have heaps of children’s rides, market stalls, food vendors and entertainment. We guarantee you and your kids will go home with happy smiles and some wonderful memories.

Woodhill State School is situated 10 minutes north of Beaudesert and 10 minutes south of Jimboomba, in a gorgeous rural setting with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The school dates back to 1873 when William Everdell, an early settler to the area, donated the land for the school to be built. Woodhill is a wonderful school with history and tradition and one of these traditions is the annual Billy Cart Derby.

For more than 20 years, this popular family event has been attracting large crowds to watch the Billy Cart racers compete for the King of the Hill trophy. We also have heaps of children's rides, market stalls, food vendors and entertainment. The Woodhill Billy Cart Derby is a popular community event, with people travelling from as far as the Gold Coast, Springfield and Ipswich. The Billy Cart Derby is the school’s biggest fund raiser of the year and all money raised helps our school buy essential resources and equipment.

Would you like to sponsor the Woodhill Billy Cart Derby?

The event raises money so that the P&C can assist the school in upgrading facilities, contributing to the cost of excursions, incursions and weekly activities such as Dance Fever and Gymnastics Lessons for every child in the school.

This year, funds raised from the Billy Cart Derby will go towards installing cold water bubblers on the oval, so that our students have access to water while playing and participating in sporting events.

There are a variety of sponsorship packages available. We would appreciate sponsorship help from all business types.
