People booking flights to Australia this summer may be interested to hear what is happening in the country’s Northern Territory.
There are a number of events taking place in Australia’s Northern Territory this summer and the region’s tourism organisation has highlighted some must-see happenings for visitors to the country.
Among the events planned are the Alice Springs Camel Cup, which is due to be held in July.
As the name suggests, riders will race one another on the backs of camels, with the participants described by Tourism NT as “brave/crazy”.
The race will be held along a stretch of the dry bed of the Todd River and promises to be “a fun day out for all”.
People who have booked flights to Australia and are looking for something truly unusual may want to travel to Darwin in August for the Beer-can Regatta.
This annual event sees teams building boats out of empty beer-cans before taking to the water in Darwin Harbour.
Anyone who has booked flights to Sydney will find that accessing the red centre of Australia will be even easier later in the year.
From August 3rd, Virgin Blue will be operating daily flights between Sydney and Uluru, with a number of cheap fares on offer to mark the introduction of the service.
Connecting flights will also be available from cities such as Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns and Perth.
