The Easter Racing Carnival has been one of South Australia’s premier social and sporting occasions for almost 150 years, and the annual pilgrimage to the Adelaide Hills track is for many a family tradition that goes back generations.
Uniquely among SA race courses, racegoers can bring their own picnics and barbeques, and by the time racing begins the car park is awash with marquees, tents and barbeques as families and friends soak up the unique country racing atmosphere.
A family-oriented event, the Easter Racing Carnival has plenty of activities and entertainment designed especially for kids, including rides and amusements, an animal petting zoo, face painting and roving entertainers.
2017 will see the introduction of The Back Paddock, a new food and drink precinct located behind the main grandstands that is open to all racegoers, with free admission. Featuring an array of premium food and drink marquees, stalls and pop-ups, punters will have a wide range of eating and drinking options to choose from in a high energy, carnival atmosphere.
Oakbank Racing Club offers a range of options for racegoers wanting the experience the thrill of high-quality racing in an idyllic Adelaide Hills setting. These include general admission tickets, the famous Punters’ Retreat, corporate boxes, reserved private marquees, with packages available for one or both days of the Carnival.
