Every year the Darwin Trailer Boat Club proudly supports Foodbank NT, as fishermen can donate their excess fish to this local organisation to help out Territorians who struggle to put food on the table. Tons of fish have been donated already… and we’re looking forward to this year’s donations.

Thanks to all of our generous sponsors, who make this event possible and ensure its success.
