Adelaide River Races

Join in the excitement of a traditional country race meeting, the thrill of a rodeo, camp draft and rural show. The Adelaide River Races, set in beautiful shady grounds, feature a seven-race program with TAB and bookie facilities on site. Bar and food facilities are available, along with children activities. A concert and dance follow the day’s races, so with free camping available throw in the swag and tent to spend the evening under the stars.

The races also features a rodeo, polocrosse, gymkhana and camp draft as well as competitions in arts and crafts, flora art, cookery, photography, horticulture and agriculture, and farm produce in both adult and children sections.

You can also enjoy and discover the heritage of Adelaide River. You can also take part in a traditional railway picnic held at the Adelaide River Railway Heritage Precinct in the Adelaide River township, south of Darwin. 'Picnic Day' was originally declared a public holiday so that railway employees could go to Adelaide River to enjoy a picnic. Have fun with games such as tug-o-war, sack and three-legged races, egg and spoon races and much more. Walk around and explore the lily-studded reservoir, or discover the historical exhibits in the Sidney Williams Exhibition Hall. Enjoy traditional railway food and refreshments served in the refreshment rooms.
