Read about this "boat race" on Wikipedia.
Here is an About.com article on the Alice Springs "dry" regatta.
It's an annual regatta on a dry river bed, attracting lots of people and "boats" and vendors. It's a big boat party! Hundreds of miles from any body of water! Ending with a "boat battle" involving water cannons and "dough bombs". It's the only regatta to be canceled in the event of water in the river bed.
Australia seems to have an incredible sense of humor.
