Outback festivals of Australia

Australia, 1976

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

This award winning film records three of the famous festivals held in the Northern Territory each year. Alice Springs is the venue of camel races and the “Henley-on-Todd”, a boating regatta held in a dry creek-bed. Darwin is infamous for its “Beer Can Regatta”, in which all the sea-going racing craft are made entirely from empty beer cans.
