Rev those engines! Australia’s Ultimate Desert race – Finke – is nearly upon us! The gruelling two day off road race for bike, cars, buggies and quads has a reputation of being one of the toughest off road races through the desert! Held over the Queen’s birthday long weekend, the Finke Desert race action kicks off on Thursday night with a street party and markets, then on Friday night head out to the Start/ Finish line to see the machines that will take the riders there and back.

Catch some of the action on Saturday with Prologue before race day one on Sunday. The race takes riders through the desert and crosses the dry Finke river on its way down to the community of Aputula (Finke) before returning to Alice Springs on Monday. You can camp down the track during the weekend but buy your marshmallows early, as they always sell out!
