    Henley on Mindil - So you built the boat for water but it didn’t float. Don’t despair, as this is the race for you. How fast can you and your mates carry your boat in a straight line in a race down the beach? This is a very keenly fought race.

Such as Hole-In-One, Tug-of-War Competitions, Kids Beach Races, McDonald’s Sandcastle Competition, Ladies Thong Throwing Competition, Henley on Mindil.

    Funds generated during the day are donated to various charities in the Darwin region each year. The main boat races between boats built out of beer or soft drink cans.

    Come and enjoy a great family day. There are beach events for all ages and the water events will be spectacular! Entrance by gold coin donation. Proceeds to projects of the combined Lions Clubs of Darwin. Bar facilities available so there is no BYO due to our licensing. Mindil Market food and craft stalls will be available from 10am to 10pm.
