Alice Springs Camel Cup

Saturday 20th July


The quirky, annual Apex Camel Cup attracts visitors to Alice Springs from all over the world.

While camels may have a reputation as dedicated 'ships of the desert', these magnificent beasts are certainly not short on personality. Racing them can prove a nightmare for riders and handlers but fantastic viewing for spectators. Entertainment is assured, with nine unique races scheduled around the dusty outback track throughout the day. There will be lots of action between races, too. Belly dancers, rickshaw races, 'Kids Kamel Kapers' hobby camel races, rides, Mr and Miss Camel Cup challenges, food stalls and bars will add to the carnival atmosphere.

Gates open at 11am, with the grand parade starting at 11.30am. The first race is at 12noon and the last race is at 4pm.
