The 2020 Darwin Lions Beer Can Regatta is an annual event not to be missed!

This iconic annual family fun event of Darwin was established in 1974 and is an event for all to use your imagination to design a vessel from cans as well as plastic bottle or milk carton as long as it floats. There is plenty of activities for the kids and a fun day out at the beautiful Mindil beach. There are prizes including cash to be won. Register your boats and teams in the ‘packages’ and increase your chances of being rewarded with great cash prizes. The day includes sandcastle competitions, running races, thong throwing competitions, kayaking races, team events, and of course the big finale event ‘The Battle of Mindil’.

Entry is a gold coin donation.
