Beer Can Regatta, 12 July
Got a few empty tinnies lying around? The annual Darwin Lions Beer Can Regatta is taking place this year at Mindil Beach and with entry price set at a gold coin donation, it’s got to be the cheapest entertainment around this July. It’s great fun to watch huge variety of beer can boat races and, if you’re feeling up to it, there’s always the novelty hat and thong throwing competitions. Mindil Market food and craft stalls are going to be trading all day, plus all proceeds go to the Lions Clubs of Darwin.
