About Camel Cup

 

This is a annual camel race held in in its own arena at Blatherskite Park. The first Camel Race was run in 1970 in the dry Todd River Bed as a bet between two mates, Noel Fullerton and Keith Mooney-Smith, and was an added attraction at the Alice Springs Centenary Year Celebrations. Since 1979, the Camel Cup has been held on its own arena at Blatherskite Park, a section of the Central Australian Show Society grounds, with a commentary and judges' tower being erected.

On the day of the race, grounds take on a carnival atmosphere with colourful stalls and rides, belly dancers and a large variety of food and drink stalls with several bars, band, along with Camel Cup souvenir stalls.

Racing the camels can prove to be a nightmare for riders and handlers but is a fantastic viewing for spectators. Entertainment is assured, with nine unique races scheduled around the dusty outback track throughout the day. Along with the race, it has other interesting aspects like - belly dancers, rickshaw races, 'Kids Kamel Dapers' hobby camel races, rides, Mr and Miss Camel Cup challenges, food stalls and bars and so on.
