Too Deadly

Celebrate NAIDOC Week at the 2023 Deadly Cup Carnival. This annual highlight on the Territory calendar celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture, promotes health and well-being, and showcases Rugby League talent from across the Territory.

Catch the NT All Stars as they go head-to-head against the Indigenous All Stars, with participating teams across a range of junior and senior age groups. The competition heats up off the field, too, with the chance to take out the highly coveted Deadly Blachung Competition. Blachung, also spelt blahcan, is a popular relish made with fresh chilli, ginger, onion, garlic and shrimp paste, and you could say we have a taste for it in the Territory.

The Deadly Cup Carnival also features a swag of family friendly events with cultural performances and activities, entertainment and activities for the kids, cooking demonstrations and a health expo.

Head along this special NAIDOC Week event and celebrate our First Nations sport and culture.
