Red Centre Events

Central Australia is home to a wide range of events that you will not find anywhere else in the world, each with their own quirk. With a jampacked calendar full of events throughout the year, every weekend you will find something happening, from small community events to world class festivals. From adventure and action to arts and culture, what ever experience you’re looking for, we’ve got it.

The region is renowned for its arts and culture, with many festivals throughout the year to celebrate. Find your perfect piece of artwork at the famous Desert Mob, which runs in September, alongside Desert Song and Desert Festival, showcasing a line up of local and interstate performers. Immerse yourself in Central Australian Aboriginal culture, where stories come to light at Parrtjima, a festival in light.

Ever seen a Camel Race? See one in Central Australia race around a dusty outback track! How about a boat race in a dry riverbed? The Rotary Henley on Todd is the only boat race that gets cancelled if the river is flowing.

Find your perfect beanie at the Alice Springs Beanie Festival, where you can choose from over 7000 beanies! When you’ve found your perfect Beanie, rev up for action packed weekends like the Red CentreNATS and Finke Desert Race.

The desert landscape and clearest of skies make Central Australia the perfect place to star gaze, and this year we welcome to inaugural Dark Skies Festival, a celebration of humanities connection to the night sky. The clear skies don’t only make it perfect for star gazing, but for enjoying the evenings with FABalice festival, a weekend full of celebrating everything rainbow, inspired by Priscilla Queen of the Desert.
