The Ute Beaut Hot100 Darwin Darwin Australia Day Ute Run will be back and ready to rev the day away!

The annual Australia Day Ute Run is a street parade that entertains spectators as it winds its way through Darwin, culminating in a community celebration. We encourage all to go overboard and deck out your ute, yourselves especially your dogs and join in.

2019 will see The Australia Day Ute Run in its 18th year. It is one of Darwin’s most anticipated and recognised Australia Day events, providing a fun family day of activity endeared by thousands of proud Territorians. Rain, Hail or Shine, we just LOVE the ute run.

Stay tuned and follow our Facebook page for more details on the day’s events.

Food and drinks will be available for purchase at Hidden Valley Raceway and Noonamah Tavern.
