Uluru Camel Cup

A true blue outback experience.

It just doesn't get any more quintessentially Aussie outback than the Uluru Camel Cup, two jam-packed days of festivities in the heart of the Red Centre. There's Fashions on the Field (NT-style), rubbing shoulders with the locals, and cheering on your favourite camel at what's dubbed the biggest small town event in the territory.

There's even more to do off-field including seeing Uluru from above on a helicopter tour, peeping quintessential Aussie wildlife at the reptile show and filling your belly at one of the many food trucks. And if that's not enough to get you on the first available flight to Central Australia, the event also plays host to the Frock Up and Rock Up Gala Ball, where you can dance to your heart's content to live music on a red desert dance floor.
