Gold Coast City Cup Raceday

Gold Coast is not only meant for the surfers, business executives, singles who are looking for fun, and honeymooners. The region also welcomes families. To make sure they would have the grandest time during their holiday, they can join or watch the Gold Coast City Cup Raceday.

What the Festival Is About

The Gold Coast City Cup Raceday is an annual celebration. Around this time, various jockeys will compete among themselves on board their horses. However, these are not only meant for the 18+ crowd, it also has several activities prepared for those who are under 18 years old.

The carnival usually begins at 10 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon on August 28. It is held at Gold Coast Turf Club Racecourse Drive at Bundall, Gold Coast. The entrance fee is cheap. It’s only $10 for the adults. Kids who are under 18 are free of charge.

What to Do

The parents can anticipate the horse racing competition. On the other hand, the kids can ride ponies, pet some animals at the zoo, climb the wall, or be entertained by clowns and other performers. They can also watch the racing contest of the big kids. Those who are into fashion can wait for the yearly fashion show at the field. The little ones, meanwhile, can enjoy painting their faces or jumping at castles. The visually talented children can surely bag great prizes in the coloring competition.

While waiting for the competition or perhaps when the kids get hungry, the entire family can hang out the myriad of restaurants or bistros within the vicinity. They can also relax inside the coffee shop. Those with babies can freshen their toddlers at the changing room. The car parking lot can accommodate hundreds of cars simultaneously.

Once the day is over, you can head to the Surfers’ Paradise, which is only 5 minutes away from the club. There you can spend time doing plenty of water activities, such as snorkeling, diving, swimming, canoeing, and fishing. You can also charter a yacht or a boat that can take you on a sunset cruise around the Gold Coast area.

Because the raceday attracts hundreds of people, make sure that you can book your Gold Coast accommodation as early as possible. We can offer many excellent choices, from holiday homes to apartment rentals. You can also request to have some of the services personalized according to your needs.
