    Prickly Pear - Desert Festival

    Oct 3rd 2021, 7:00pm - 9:00pm

    Prickly Pear is a multidisciplinary live arts event showcasing women and gender-diverse creatives of Mparntwe/Alice Springs. Comprised of short performance slots, this piece moves between spoken word, music, audio/visual art and live performance. Prickly Pear shines light on the collective, encouraging the viewer to view art as something shared, rather than isolated individual performances. The event prioritises local and original artists, and within this is an aim to increase access to amplified space and performance opportunities for underrepresented groups. Prickly Pear will mark the closing event of the Desert Festival 2021, so be sure not to miss this one. Prickly Pear Totem Theatre Sunday 3rd October – 7pm

    Historical Trail - Celebrations for Centenary of 1st Landing

    Oct 4th 2021

    Visit other historical sites with links to aviation to get a better understanding of how aviation opened up the Outback. Check out the Aviation Museum website for suggestions. The first flight from Melbourne to Alice Springs, 100 years ago this October, was made by a passionate young aviator – Frank Briggs – then aged 27, in a de Havilland-4 owned by his employer, Clement de Garis. His mechanic was Alfred (George) Bailey. Adventurer, Francis Birtles was a passenger. The trip took ten days. However, before they could return the aviators had to wait a number of weeks for their fuel supply to arrive by camel train! The Central Australian Aviation Museum is hosting a program of celebration events between 2 – 5 October 2021 to mark the milestone. Details can be found on the Museum website. centralaustralianaviationmuseum.org.au where you can also read an edited version of Briggs’ diary.

Exhibition Time Flies! is a travelling exhibition that will mark 100 years of civil aviation in Australia, highlighting unusual objects and stories that explore how aviation transformed everyday life in Australia’s diverse communities. Daily - See Aviation Museum opening hours on website centralaustralianaviationmuseum.org.au 7 Mile Aerodrome – Guided Tour 12noon to 2pm Heritage listed, the 7 Mile is the original site of the Alice Springs Airport. Built in 1940 to accommodate the military build-up in the north, 7 Mile could take larger and heavier aircraft than the Townsite aerodrome (now the location of Central Australian Aviation Museum). This development led to the eventual closure of Townsite, in 1968. Formally referred to as the Australian National Aviation Museum, the group’s committee is working towards developing the site into an informative historical museum complementing the exhibits at the Central Australian Aviation Museum. Details, turn up at noon on site or contact: 7mileaviation@gmail.com 0438 074 304

    Centenary of 1st Flight - Community dinner celebrations

    Oct 5th 2021, 5:00pm - 9:00pm

    Touch down - 5 October 1921. “Soon I was over the gap in the ranges and could see the clearing ahead. A crowd had gathered, and we were given a rousing welcome.” Pilot, Lt Frank Briggs Celebrations from 5pm, outdoors on the tarmac at Central Australian Aviation Museum for the Fly-Over & Landing Re-enactment; Not-So-Tall-Tales by past aviators; Book Launch; 1st Flight Memorial unveiling. Food stalls (seating & tables provided) Aviator, Frank Briggs flew into Alice Springs in a de Havilland-4 bi-plane, along with his mechanic, Alfred Bailey, and adventurer and photographer, Francis Birtles. The whole town turned out to behold this amazing spectacle and marveled at the courage of the three men who would be the catalyst for change in the Outback. Briggs took 10 days to get here departing from Melbourne and putting down at Nhill, Adelaide, Maree, Oodnadatta and the Charlotte Waters Telegraph Station, en route. Celebrations followed at the Stuart Arms. However, they then had to wait a couple of weeks for their fuel supply to arrive by camel train. Hear all about it! Now it’s our turn to “turn out” to celebrate! For details of all events, checkout Museum website; centralaustralianaviationmuseum.org.au
