camel-site-logoNormally a dusty outback outpost with the feel of a pioneer town, ‘the Alice’ explodes with belly dancing, bands, rickshaw rallies and, most importantly, camel races. The Cup is held annually on the 2nd Saturday in July in its own arena at Blatherskite Park, a section of the Central Australian Show Society grounds.

This event may be just one too far to reach by superyacht !! But give Jack Tar a call we’ll have go!

Camel racing may sound a trifle surreal to anyone not acquainted with the Northern Territory, Australia’s least-populated area. The sport’s appeal lies in the beasts’ unpredictability and irascibility. They snarl, gurn, bite, and can spit more than 3m. At the start of a race, they might stay right where they are or even reverse, while when they get going at full tilt, jockeys have to do their utmost to stay astride.
