The Annual Dinner Plain Sleddog Challenge event showcases the top dogs of sled dog racing in Australia and is unique in being the first Australian snow-based race of its kind. More than 75 Mushers (dog team drivers) and in excess of 350 sled dogs are expected to compete at this year's event. The race is held over two days.

This year, spectators will see 2, 3, 4 and 6 dog teams supplemented by the exhilarating 8 dog team class. If your plans are to attend this popular weekend you are definitely in for a unique experience.

Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes are the most common breeds of dogs raced. Both breeds are visually and physically powerful competitors given snow is a part of their natural habitat. Siberian Huskies are extremely quick on their paws, while the Alaskan Malamutes are known for their endurance over longer distances.

Grab your camera, winter woollies and rug up for this exciting and exhilarating high country event exclusive to Dinner Plain.
