Black Dog Ride to the Red Centre 2015 - Darwin
Black Dog Ride
Since 2009, Black Dog Ride has raised over $1,700,000 for mental health services and started the conversation of depression awareness in every corner of the country. Be part of this epic unforgettable ride and register today!
With reflective consideration on the previous Red Centre Rides to Alice Springs we have chosen Yulara and the nearby, Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park for the 2015 Black Dog Ride to the Red Centre.
The iconic Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) hold a deep spiritual place for all Australians. It also provides us with a setting to quiet the noise of our lives, to sit and reflect.
Both Indigenous and non Indigenous people feel the presence of the spirit within and on the land. The red sand hills, spinifex, natural beauty and the harshness of the country, both challenge us and welcome us.
The modest extra cost associated with this priceless trip will be forgotten through the experience of being there. There are no plans to repeat this Ride in the foreseeable future.
Please read the following information and browse the FAQs section if you have any questions about this iconic Ride.
