THE 20th Anniversary of Aussie flick Priscilla: Queen of the Desert has forced Drive 4 Life organisers to shuffle the dates for the upcoming Flinders Ranges Tour.
The movie, which was filmed in and around Broken Hill, wrapped up on the weekend of September 14 and 15, 1999, and people will be flocking to the area to celebrate the movie’s 20th anniversary.
For this reason, hotels and motels in the area can only be booked for a minimum of three nights, and Drive 4 Life’s desired dinner venue has also refused to accept the charity’s booking for 80 people as it means other guests would need to be turned away.
Drive 4 Life has rearranged the tour, which will now start on Sunday, September 1, and conclude on Sunday, September 8 – the first time in Drive 4 Life’s 14-year operating history where the dates have been altered.

Drive 4 Life’s director, Chris Bates, said bookings can be cancelled if the new dates aren’t suitable for punters who have already signed up, and refunds will be available if required.
Drive 4 Life has raised $804,500 for the Northcott foundation since its inception, supporting children and young adults – and their families – with disabilities.
