Tatts Finke Desert Race

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

The Tatts Finke Desert Race is an off road, multi terrain two-day race for bikes, cars, buggies and quads through desert country from Alice Springs to the small Aputula (Finke) community.

“Finke” as it is commonly known, is one of the biggest annual sporting events in the Northern Territory and has the reputation of being one of the most difficult offroad courses in one of the most remote places in the world.

The race brings more than 7,000 people to Alice Springs annually from across Australia and the rest of the world, with a boost to the economy of an estimated $7 million. Finke is unique and the most fun you can have with a helmet on. The race is held each year on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June.
