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.
