Top End Mud Racing

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

Get dirty as VW Beetles and high-powered Top Gun vehicles race along a course through deep mud and water, enjoying the noise, dirt and atmosphere.

Grab the family for an action packed night of Mud Racing.

Held in the wet season, this loud, fast pace, exciting and very, very dirty sport (for the competitors) is great viewing for all the family. Watch as VW Beetles to purpose built high powered Top Gun vehicles complete against each other, and the clock, through a 700 metre course.

There's plenty of room to spread out and watch as the drivers and their cars fight their way through deep mud and water. Food and beverages (including a bar) are available on the night and don't forget to bring something to sit on.

Held once a month on Saturday night during the wet season.
