Event description
The Great Air Race inspires Australia to spread its wings and adventurous aviators to undertake new challenges.

About this Event

The race was over, what next for the Vimy crew? This pioneering race inspired many aerial adventurers over the next century. An overland journey that led to an airline. Air travel and air mail we now take for granted, but it all started with this race.

Presenters: Ken Lai & Fiona Shanahan

The Great Air Race Talks are presented by the Darwin Aviation Museum as part of the Great Air Race Centenary program of events, supported by the Northern Territory Government.


Thanks to the Fannie Bay History & Heritage Society, Northern Territory Library, Northern Territory Archives Centre, State Library of South Australia and South Australian Aviation Museum for their assistance with research and materials for the Great Air Race Talks.
