Central Australia – The Place to Be for Events, June – August

Winter is definitely the most popular holiday season for Alice Springs and this year is no exception with a multitude of events and activities for visitors to the area to participate. Of course who can deny how beautiful Central Australia is at this time of the year. At Big4 MacDonnell Range Holiday Park we have spent the past few months preparing the park for guests with lots of refurbishments taking place to buildings and facilities, gardens being beautified and roads resurfaced. Already the park is filling with happy travellers enjoying the ambiance only Big4 MacDonnell Range Holiday Park offers.

These are just some of the events you can look forward to while visiting the Alice.

For the month of June there are two car/motorbike events on for all who enjoy the adrenaline of fast and furious racing. The world famous Finke Desert Race 10-13 June followed by the Classic Outback Trial Rally 18-24 June.

Continuing on into July we have Territory Day on July 1, most notable by the fact that for one day you can legally buy fireworks and let them off. The Alice Springs Show is also on July 1-2, and a week later the Apex Camel Cup is held on July 9. All famous Alice Springs events which attract visitors from all over Australia and the globe.

If June is the month for petrol heads then August is for fitness freaks!!

Run Larapinta is held August 12-15 and is a  four day trail running race on the iconic Larapinta Trail. This is followed later in the month by the Redback MTB Enduro  August 18-21 with four days and six stages of mountain bike racing in and around Alice Springs.

The fun continues with the Henley On Todd Regatta, the world’s only dry river boat race, on August 20. With such a great line-up of events there is no excuse not to visit Alice Springs so get packing, get on the road and we look forward to seeing you in the Alice.
