Tatts Finke Desert Race

Saturday 10th June - Tuesday 13th June

Come and experience a truly unique outback event. The Finke Desert Race is Australia's premier off-road racing event that attracts bike, car and buggy entries from around Australia and overseas. It is a multi-terrain, two-day race through desert country from Alice Springs to the small Aputula (Finke) Community and is reputed to be one of the most difficult off-road races in one of the most remote places in the world. The Finke, as the event is commonly known, is run along sections of the Old Ghan Railway service track, adjacent to the railway line, along a winding corrugated track, which snakes through typical outback terrain of red dirt, sand, spinifex, mulga and desert oaks. The Finke enables people from all walks of life to become involved. For 3 days, it is estimated that 500 bikes and 90 buggies compete annually at this one of a kind race.
