what could be better

then box-sledding 

on dirt and dried grass

while dreaming of snow?

  1. The Rotary Henley on Todd Regatta is a fun, quirky and eclectic ‘boat’-racing festival held annually on the dry sandy bed of the Todd River in downtown Alice Springs, Northern Territory – the only dry river boating regatta in the world. Attendees compete in ‘boat’-races Flintstones-style, holding a metal frame and running for the finish line.
