Darwin Lions Beer Can Regatta

Event Details

The Darwin Lions Beer Can Regatta is an annual event not to be missed!

This iconic annual family fun event of Darwin  was established in 1974 and  is an event for all to use your imagination to design a vessel from cans as well as plastic bottle or milk carton as long as it floats.

There is plenty of activities for the kids and a fun day out.

There are events for the kids, family, adults and spectators! Prizes are awarded for winners of each race and competition we even have a prize for the best novelty boat… it doesn’t have to race to win!

Have a read of some of our fun and adventurous activities for the day and make sure you don’t miss out. Make sure you get there early so you don’t miss out!


Soft Drink Can Boat Race
If you and your friends think you have the stomach to drink enough soft drink to build a boat out of cans, then this is your race. Great for Schools

Beer Can Boat Race (Crew of 4)
This event tests your boat building and racing abilities on the water. How well can 4 people come together to master the rough seas in a can boat!


Iron Person Competition
Both iron man and iron women competitions.

Tug-of-War Competitions
Held on the beach throughout the day. Each team consists of eight people with competitions for adults and children

Kids Sand Castle Competition
The best kids sand castle. Looking for creative effort on this one.

Kids Beach Races
Held each year for the kids to see who’s the fastest on the sand.

Ladies & Mens Thong Throwing Competition
Just how much practice have you had through the year to compete in this competition will decide whether you end up a finalist. These are the thongs you wear on your feet by the way, not the other kind.

Make sure you have a look at our photo galleries to see the previous year’s fun!
