Now deserted, it was once a busy meeting point for the pastoralists and drovers moving their mobs of cattle through customs and onto the markets of South Australia, and served as a Cobb & Co. change station. Twice a year the town bounces back to life for the Betoota Gymkhana in April and the Betoota Races on the last Saturday in August.
