T&R Christmas Cup

What a great social day and plenty on to keep the kids entertained.

Jenny Robinson, T&R Pastoral

Ceduna Christmas Races

What a great day great we had. It gave us the opportunity to be involved in the community in sponsoring the Christmas Handicap.

We incorporated our Christmas party to be held on the same day, fortunately, most staff members and their families were able to attend. The marquee concept is brilliant, it was fully maintained all day, the seafood and assorted platters were fantastic, the range of beverages were great, all in all it was a great day to relax and  socialize with the community .

Looking forward to this year’s racing season as we have already booked the Christmas Handicap feature race.

Andrew Parkyn, Store Manager, Foodland Ceduna

We love getting employers, employees, clients, partners and kids together for a fabulous day of fun and interaction.

Superbly organised, just one email and we have a marquee set up for our arrival, pre-order from a terrific selection of hot and cold catering options including our famous local seafood, our choice of drinks, and all delivered to our marquee -  there really is something for everyone’s taste.

A great family day out - some of us even watch the horse racing!!

Woolshed Inn Bordertown Cup

Our end of year party at the Bordertown Cup is great because it’s a family event everyone can enjoy. The fashion on the field is great for the ladies to get involved in. The venue is fantastic and the food is delicious!!

Rachelle Cadzow, Farmers Centre Pty Ltd

We thoroughly enjoy holding our Christmas show at the Bordertown Races because it's a chance for all staff to get together, let their hair down and relax with family and friends. Having all the catering, entertainment and seating arranged for us makes it a very easy going day out.

Simply brilliant!

Gawler Christmas Races

Our clients love getting out of the office and talking business in a laid back, relaxed environment. There’s no pressure to talk shop, you get to know your clients on a personal level which is great for business.

Ben Seekamp, Chief Operating Officer, McGees Property

Christmas in the Hills, Oakbank

We all love the tradition, colour and excitement of Oakbank at Easter. But celebrating the festive season at the Oakbank Christmas Races in December is what our staff love even more.

We bring together our team and their families to enjoy a Christmas party, like no other. Space to spread out on the lawns under the shade of giant gum trees, children free to run around and take part in fun activities, a visit from Santa, and all the action trackside, makes for the perfect family-friendly Christmas party.

Get your group up into the Adelaide Hills this year and pick a winner. For a relaxed, hassle-free and memorable Christmas function we back Oakbank all the way!
