Ring in Australia Day with a hefty Outback breakfast at Tennant Creek followed by Aussie sports like thong throwing and raft racing out on Tingkkarli.
Celebrate Australia Day with an outback breakfast and join the fun of unique Australian novelty sporting events at Tennant Creek.
On 26 January the nation celebrates what's great about being Australian with official and formal functions as well as fun activities with family and friends. The 'Golden Heart' town of Tennant Creek celebrates all day starting early with the official flag raising and singing of the National Anthem. Then join participants to dine on a generous outback 'Aussie breakfast'.
Refuelled and ready for some fun, head out to nearby Tingkkarli/Lake Mary Ann to compete in a range of very Australian activities, including egg catching, sack races and thong throwing. The highlight of the day is a raft race on the lake.
The Australia Day Barkly Triathlon is run on and around the lake and afterwards there's a free barbecue for everyone to enjoy.
