Central Australia Events

Northern Territory Events
There are a huge range of listed events under Alice Springs Events.
Finke Desert Race
• 2nd weekend of June (Queen’s Birthday weekend)
The greatest desert race in the southern hemisphere attracts record entrants and thousands of spectators. ‘The Finke’ to locals and off road racers around the world, is a unique outback race for bikes, cars and buggies, stretching some 235 km through desert country, from Alice Springs to Finke (Aputula Community).

The race follows sections of the Old Ghan Railway service track, adjacent to the railway line, along a winding corrugated track that snakes its way through red dirt, sand, desert oak, mulga and spinifex country. The length of this spectacular route enables people to stake a position along the track, and even camp underneath the stars, whilst enjoying the adrenalin fuelled fun of a uniquely Central Australian event. See the website for more information.

Henley on Todd
Henley on Todd Regatta
• Mobile: 0418 897 027 • Email
• Held 3rd Saturday of August
The world famous boat race is an annual event held on the Todd River. All that is needed for this madcap event, is a dry riverbed, plenty of bottomless boats, plenty of frivolity and laughter, and the human kind of ‘horse power’. Starting with the parade at 11 am up Todd Mall, with contestants showing off their boats, the Henley-on-Todd provides a nautical madcap day of entertainment, finishing with the traditional ‘Battle of the Boats’.

The only time the boat race may not run to schedule is if the Todd River is flowing, as happened in 1993, when there was too much water in the Todd River and the event had to be cancelled due to flooding!
