We want to say thank you

We simply want to say thank you to our local community and the racing industry for the past year with a special FREE festive raceday.

Start your seasonal celebrations with free family Twilight racing – from early afternoon into the evening. As well as a myriad of bars and restaurants for the social crowd, there will be a special visit from Santa with free photo opportunities, a festive parade, Christmas treats, free amusement rides, jumping castles, petting zoo and pony rides for our younger racegoers to enjoy throughout the day.

Plus, see Bluey and her little sister Bingo for their Christmas Live Experience at Royal Randwick. Get ready to play Verandah Santa, Classic Catches, Keepy Uppy and more.

After racing there will be a special festive performance from Bonnie Anderson to enjoy on the Octagonal Lawn.

Entry is free but please register online to secure your place. Hospitality packages available.
