Funkhana history

This year’s Funkhana is the 28th district Funkhana. To learn more about the history of this iconic local event click here.

Sick of horse events yet?  Don’t think so.  If you see two lovely ladies riding horses up the Stuart Highway from now until mid July then say hello and give them a donation.  They will ride 1000 km in 32 days. The ‘Horses for Courses’ – Ride for Bush Kids, will take place during the NT June/July School Holidays, 2017. Whilst the distance in excess of a thousand kilometres sounds rather daunting, we are doing it because that’s the kind of distance Isolated Children living in Rural and Remote areas of Australia deal with on a daily basis when it comes to education in the bush.  Read more


Bookings for arrival dinner can be made through Ticketebo

And what is happening with the Equine Facility?  Its all steam ahead and many volunteers in and out of the district are helping with this great facility.  This weekend’s Funkhana will be the first thing held within the facility.  Equine facility report
