Let’s get ready to paaaaaarty!!

It was always a sell-out in years gone by before COVID put a spanner in the works, but if you haven’t heard, The Paddock, located within our new and improved infield (centre of the track) is the place to be this Boxing Day Races.

​If you’re wanting to spend your time trackside with mates, great tunes, pop-up food & chilled drinks to keep you cool under the summer sun (oh, check out some horse racing in the background), this is the precinct for you.

Pssst……The Paddock also plays host to the day’s afterparty so you won’t have any reason to move after the last.
