Oakbank Easter Saturday

Race day

Oakbank, Oakbank

Saturday, 20th April, 2019
7:00am - 5:00pm

Easter Saturday at Oakbank is one of the jewels in the South Australian racing calendar.

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.

Oakbank Easter Saturday will feature the Great Eastern Steeplechase. Gates will open at 7am.
