The annual Beer Can Regatta celebrates Darwin’s love affair with beer as contestants race boats made exclusively of beer cans. This is a fundraising event for various charities around the NT (including Cancer Council and the Down Syndrome Association), hosted by the Combined Lions Clubs of Darwin. A great family fun day, the regatta also hosts beach and water activities, such as tug-of-war, sandcastle competitions, pirate ship battles and running, kayak and rowing races. There is a bar available and the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets trade all day, providing food and craft stalls to peruse.
