UPDATE, August 9, 2022: The Wickham has closed its studio, Wickham Bar and beer garden for renovations, meaning that its Drag Race Down Under viewing parties will no longer go ahead.


Start your engines, RuPaul's Drag Race Down Under fans — and head them Fortitude Valley's way. With the beloved drag competition series' local version returning for season two from Saturday, July 30, The Wickham is throwing parties to celebrate. It's hosting viewing parties, of course, so you can watch along while you hang out in the Wickham Street bar's beer leafy garden.

On Saturdays during the season's run, starting at 5pm, the new batch of drag contestants will strut across the venue's big screen — and host RuPaul, plus judges Michelle Visage and Rhys Nicholson, too. You'll watch, you'll marvel, you'll throw shade. The Wickham's Drag Race Down Under viewing parties will also include special guests, just like the show it's honouring.

Entry is free but bookings are still recommended — and, you can either pay for what you eat and sip as you go, or nab a $55 share platter for two. It includes a range of bites, as well as a couple of cocktails.

And no, no word yet on if there'll be a sausage sizzle when that comes up in the series — as seen in the trailer below:
