Sunbuild Top End Gran Fondo

The 2017 edition of Darwin's biggest ride was held in beautiful dry season weather on August 20.  With a 120km, 60km and 3km option, this amazing fun run on a bike is set to be a popular event with locals and interstate riders looking to escape the Southern Australia winter in years to come.   The 2018 edition is in full planning mode for August 19.


A-League Action in Tasmania

Epic Events & Marketing were in deep negotiations with an A-League club to play a match in Tasmania during the 2015/2016 season.  Sadly on this occassion it didn't transpire, but conversations continue with key stakeholders to make this a reality in future seasons..  Not since Melbourne Victory and Central Coast Mariners played at Aurora Stadium in January 2013 have we hosted a match for points, so as the excitement builds EPIC will be at the forefront.
