Darwin Lions Beer Can Regatta
An annual project of the Combined Lions Clubs of the Top End.
The Darwin Lions Beer Can Regatta for 2018 will be on 22nd July at Mindil Beach in-conjunction with Mindil Beach Sunet Markets 10am to 5pm for the Regatta, while the markets continued to 9pm.
The Regatta began in 1974, 6 months prior to cyclone Tracy, and is apart from a fun day, a charity money raising day for our locally designated recipients each year. The event raises between $40K and $49K annually.
Previous recipients have included The St John's Rural Volunteer Ambulance Service, Anglicare, Somerville Community Services, Cancer Council, Camp Quality and others.
The site is licensed and has a bar from 10am to 5.30pm with no BYO alcohol before 4 pm allowed and strictly enforced. The entrance to the fun is by gold coin donation, with proceeds going to local recipients.

Congratulations on a great family day benefiting the community. Thank you to all our sponsors without whom the event would not be possible. We will see you at Mindil Beach on 22nd July 2018!
