ABOUT

Thunda Down Under 2019 is like no other event you have ever seen!

Rocketeers from all over the world will come to Australia and compete against each other to see who can launch their rockets the highest and the fastest! Rockets (big and small) some 30 ft tall, will be launched reaching speeds up to 4,500km p/h as they hurtle towards the edge of the atmosphere.

Thunda 2019 will see launches from participants from New Zealand, USA, India, Germany, Netherlands, England, Japan and our very own Aussie Rocketeers plus, this year, Thunda 2019 welcomes the best of the Australian Youth Aerospace Association (AYAA) as they invite Universities to compete in the inaugural Australian Universities Rocket Competition (AURC).

This family event has rockets, fireworks, firewalls, parachute displays and aerobatic flights. There is something for everyone at Thunda Downunder 2019, you can even build and launch your own rocket!

Come along and camp out, enjoy rockets by day and fun entertainment at night.
