Held in the heart of Australia in Alice Springs, this iconic
annual event can snare the most mature and conservative of business people, who
don their alter ego or a new persona for roles such as the "Vikings" and the
"Pirates" who, after a day of wonderful intermingling with us ordinary folks,
will then man the battle boats for a spectacular finale in ships that are
bristling with mortars and high pressure water cannons.
Every year for one day
in August, the longest running "HOT" iconic Northern Territory event takes places on
the sandy bed of the Todd River. From home made boats, to outrageous costumes,
from little children to grand parents, from friends to lovers, from mates to
work colleagues, the town of Alice comes together in a wonderful celebration and
to raise money for the wonderful causes of the three Rotary Clubs based in the
Alice. Run entirely on a volunteer basis, the
Henley-On-Todd Regatta is a must see event in everyone's
