Santos Best Dressed Town Competition

The Santos Tour Down Under Best Dressed Town Competition is a great way for South Australian communities, businesses, property owners and households to be a part of the excitement of the Santos Tour Down Under.

The competition is open to all towns, suburbs, businesses, property owners and households along the race route on the Down Under Classic and stages 1-5 inclusive. Daily winners for each category of town, private residence, property, paddock, school and commercial property will be awarded, and an overall winner for each category at the end of the race.

If you are situated along any part of the Down Under Classic or stage 1-5 race routes, make sure you ‘dress to impress’ either your community, business, paddock or house and nominate!
