A multifaceted entertainment complex, Tabcorp Park is a unique and modern venue featuring a spacious bistro, indoor playground, function centre, Mantra Hotel and luscious lawns overlooking the picturesque harness racing track.
Known as Victoria’s home of harness racing, it is the perfect place to spend some quality time with the whole family.
While the weather warms up, the venue is abuzz with excitement as major racing events commence. Tabcorp Park is known for showcasing premium racing, as well as an array of free activities for the entire family.
The major events calendar kicks off with the Pryde’s EasiFeed Victoria Cup, on Saturday 9 October, featuring the popular Food Truck precinct, free kids rides and activities, entertainment, roving performers and DJ on the main stage.
Following the Victoria Cup is the Breeders Crown on Saturday 20 November. A regal horse-drawn carriage adorns the track, carrying the winners of each race with a theme of everything to do with horses. The Breeders Crown will offer pony rides, free kids activities, giveaways, live entertainment, art stations and lots more.
To celebrate the end of 2021, you can’t forget the famous New Year’s Eve event that goes off with a bang, featuring loads of activities and the best fireworks display in the west. The 2022 Summer of Glory that follows is a carnival of adrenaline-filled racing and summer fun.
Kids will be thrilled with how close they can get to the horses on a race night. With the track adjacent to the main lawn, they can watch as the horses race past with dedicated male and female drivers guiding the sulkies around the track. Kids can even go and see the horses in the stables or parade ring.
The Kids’ Club is the perfect way for kids to feel even more included. With regular updates about the very popular free activities at racing events, school holiday shows, competitions, giveaways and meal specials for the kids in the bistro. You won’t want to miss out, so ask the friendly staff how your kids can join when you next visit.
Tabcorp Park also has the Pony Trots program, designed for children aged six to 16 years old to get involved with their pony and have some fun out on the track. This is a fabulous platform for the future drivers of the industry where they can learn about the sport and better their skills.
