Featured Activities

  HENLEY ON TODD HENLEY ON TODD:
Dry river boat regatta. Come race your best human powered boat! Or come watch the hilarious events.
 
Central Australia's annual Henley on Todd is a boat race with a difference. It's held on the dry sands of the Todd River that runs through the center of Alice Springs. Custom designed bottomless boats allow contestants to run, scramble and stumble their way through a variety of traditionally inspired but completely novel events. There is a variety of events to fill the day to include anchor the boat, sand shoveling, bath derbys, surf rescue, and others. The event is concluded with a battle boat spectacular; where two massive boats powered by 4x4's engage in combat with high powered water guns and flour cannons.

Mount up and race camels around the track for cash prizes and bragging rights! Oh yes, they DO spit.
