I must say New Zealand is so well known for sheep farming and lamb but I’ve heard little about Australian cowboy culture.
Huge culture in Australia, the pastoral industries ( both sheep and cattle ) were the economic powerhouses of the Nation for 150 years ( before te development of minerals and mining. )

In Australia, cowboys are known as ' Ringers'.

Then came 1801. Here we go, new century and boy do things change. Toussaint Loverture, the leader of the Haitians -then still a French colony- and who considered himself "The First of the Blacks,"

Despite the invasion of Loverture didn't have much effect in the east, because the Haitian army never made it to towns such as Higüey or El Seibo, and there was hardly a slave population in the region

When news arrived in Paris and Napoleon became aware of what Loverture did
There is a hugely loose connection at best to Cowboy culture which this thread is about btw, to Canarians’ reproduction rate or the Treaty of Basilea, or enslaved people of Haiti or Napoleon or Loverture. Then there’s a whole speal about sugar mills. There’s an oil industry in Texas and the Los Llanos region, I don’t expect a whole history lesson on Oil in the area when the focus is on the Cowboy culture. Your posts are clearly off-topic.

Actually now you mention it I have heard of Ringers before. Would you say this culture/region is frequented by national tourists because of its culture or nature? Thanks for keeping concise and on-topic to the thread’s subject matter.

What are the main towns and areas where this culture is practiced?

In rural Uruguay, idle men mostly appeared to be gauchos and were very adept at doing things with one hand -- the other hand holding their stein of mate, the most foul-tasting substance I've ever tasted. Lots in Paraguay and north Argentina, too. All of which are delightful and under-appreciated places to visit. They can all sing gaucho songs and play guitar, too -- here, hold my mate.

The small town of Saint-Tite in the Mauricie region (where the festival video was made) is considered by everyone to be the cowboy and country and western capital of Québec, but I don't think the culture is necessarily more predominant there than in any other region.

You'll find a bit of in most any rural area here, and like everywhere in the world it's much less present in the major urban areas.

Saint-Tite brings up a different facet of " Cowboy Culture ". It's more of a celebration of the culture rather than being truly authentic. As you know it started with a rodeo in 1967 to promote the area's leather industry and has grown into what it is today. They even " westerned up " the look of the town I believe, like a theme park might do.
Not dissing it, just clarifying that in a discussion about culture, the difference should be pointed out.

It pretty much is very similar to the American cowboy culture in western Canada correct?

When you compare the Canadian province of just Alberta to Texas, more striking similarities begin to emerge. For quite a while, Alberta has been known as the Texas of Canada (or Texas of the North) as its people, to a very great extent, are more like Texans than any other people in Canada. Examples...

- The ranches of Alberta compare very well to the ranches of Texas, though they’re neither as large nor as numerous.
- Albertans know and rely on the oilfields, as do Texans.
- Alberta’s irrigated areas correspond to Texas’ fruit growing areas.
- both sprawl massively across their respective countries of North America.
- Alberta’s north is still a frontier with a Texan ring to it. Looking limitless.

So North America still has a Cowboy culture that is a bit different then South of the USA border if the USA and Canada are considered. Some might say a dieing breed being a true Cowboy. Still the vast Canadian and USA regions have a Cowboy culture that survives.
