Adelaide River Show Society

Located on the fringe of the township of Adelaide River (some 120km south of Darwin), the Adelaide River Show Society is a voluntary organisation dedicated to the promotion and encouragement of cultural, sporting, recreational and social activities in this region adjoining the iconic Litchfield National Park. 

Our close proximity to so many tourist attractions in this area makes Adelaide River (and other surrounding towns such as Batchelor and Lake Bennett) obvious places to stay to discover the region. 

We even have our own caravan park however, due to our popularity, we don’t take bookings – you need to call and check site availability. 

The Adelaide River Show Society is renowned for hosting 3 major events each year : the Adelaide River Races and the Adelaide River Show (June) and the ANZAC Day “Gunfire” Breakfast (April).

From May to September each year we open the bar and kitchen on a regular basis (usually from Wed – Sun, inclusive).

We’re a nice place to ‘chill out’, meet some of the areas local ‘characters’ and maybe pick up some ARSS memorabilia such as our famous stubby coolers, singlets etc.

So come on over, pull up a seat and don’t be shy in introducing yourself.  We look forward to welcoming you to the ARSS Club!
