Alice Springs Bangtail Muster - Cities, Towns and Localities


“Crikey... it's the Bangtail Muster”

Bangtail Muster
• Rotary Club of Alice Springs
• Usually held on the first Monday in May
Details: Annual event that first began in 1959 to celebrate the ties between Alice Springs and the cattle industry and was a tribute to the pastoral heritage of Central Australia. Cattlemen would cut off the hairy end of the animal’s tail after they were mustered to give them an overall animal count.

Today the event is part of the history of the Alice, and each year the organisers of the parade, the Rotary Club of Alice Springs, promote a theme for the parade (2004 was sport, 2005 was water and 2006 was Aussie Heroes). The parade passes through the town centre and ends with a family entertainment/concert.
 

The 2006 event saw some 4,000 people attend, as the parade with its many floats,, wound its way along Gap Road, Todd Street, Todd Mall, to end at Anzac Oval. Among the many participants included fire engines, police pursuit cars, prime movers, a former plane-boarding staircase truck, with entries from local primary schools and other local organisations.

The Rotary Club of Alice Springs is part of the world-wide community service organisation that does a lot of good work in the Alice Springs community, raising funds, providing financial support to an educational trust fund, and a huge number of other programs.
