Bringing together the community since 1974
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 bottles or milk cartons as long as it floats.
There is plenty of activities for the kids and a fun day out. The day includes individual and team Boat Races, as well as sandcastle building, thong throwing competitions, Ironman and other races and many other beach events.
Make sure you have a look at our photo galleries to see the previous year’s fun!
Entries for boat and water events can be registered online or on the day. Check back in March for the 2024 registrations.
