Residential Building (Flat / Apartment)
“1. Cane Toad Racing The Iron Bar is renowned for the best cane toad races in the country! Totally unique and utterly hilarious, they have been racing cane toads for nearly 16 years now. Tickets to get in cost about $5 each and can be bought as you go in (show starts at 8pm) or purchased earlier in the day, which is the best option during peak times. There are usually 2 races - the first is a random draw of the entry tickets. If your number is called you are then assigned a toad. Runners include Fat Bastard, Gay Freddie, Pigeon Toad, Shagging Camel Toad, Aussie, Aussie, Aussie and all time favourite Jerry Springer. A quick kiss of the toad for luck and then the fun begins. As the toads are released encouragement is needed, so this is a great opportunity for the whole crowd to get involved with cheers and screams. For the second race the Toads are auctioned off. If you miss out in the first round, make sure you bid and buy one for the second round, and be prepared for lots of laughs”
