Fannie Bay Equestrian Club (FBEC) is a ‘grassroots’, not-for-profit community pony club, run by a committee of hard-working volunteers and

We Need Your Help !!


Located on East Point Reserve, FBEC is a horse club for the people of Darwin. It has been a feature on East Point for over 55 years since it was incorporated in 1968. It’s a centre for recreational horse-riding and a sports club where people who want to compete can practice and improve their riding skills. 


The club has stables and riding facilities for the community to use and over the decades thousands of people in Darwin have enjoyed belonging to the club. FBEC also has 10 hectares of pasture for the horses to graze, and fences, sheds and other infrastructure.  


A tractor in good working order is absolutely essential for the club to be able to maintain and improve its pastures, grounds and infrastructure.


Our current tractor is used almost every day of the year to do a variety of tasks: 

  •  rip, aerate, seed, fertilise, slash, and weed spray the paddocks
  • move hay bales, bags of feed & fertiliser, pallets of horse manure & pavers, fencing materials, etc.
  • level ground, spread mulch, lift logs and other heavy objects 

but it is now 16 years old and needs to be replaced before it is no longer working and we are left in the lurch.


A new UHI 65 HP tractor with AC cab and 3 attachments 

(4 in 1 bucket, pallet forks, 6’ slasher)  

for $34,990

is 'good value for money' and would meet our needs well


Our club membership fees are modest so, as a club, we rely mainly on fundraising, grants and donations to make improvements and buy equipment. The club has some savings to put towards the new tractor and we are very busy holding fundraising events. We also plan to apply for a minor community grant. Taken together this funding will bring us towards the purchase price of the tractor, but we need donors to help us get ‘over the line'.

If you can assist with a donation, THANK YOU !! It will help to ensure our unique club remains viable as a community asset for the people of Darwin well into the future.
