Summer fun at the trots

There is plenty of fun for the kids at Tabcorp Park this summer.

Home to Harness Racing in Victoria, Tabcorp Park is a unique and modern venue featuring a spacious bistro, indoor playground, function centre and Mantra Hotel.

With luscious lawns that overlook the picturesque Harness Racing track, it is the perfect place to spend some quality time with the whole family.

As the weather warms up, the venue is buzzing with excitement as the venue’s major events commence showcasing premium racing, with an array of free activities available for the entire family.

The famous New Year’s Eve event is one to mark down in the calendar. Featuring loads of activities, entertainment and the best fireworks display in the west, Tabcorp Park will be the place to be to say goodbye to 2021.

In 2022, the venue’s three day Summer of Glory carnival, running on 29 January and 4-5 February will feature vibrant colour, summer fun and adrenaline filled racing: it’s an event not to be missed.

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 then get closer to the action by visiting the stables and parade ring.

With regular updates about the very popular free kids activities at racing events, school holiday shows, competitions, giveaways and meal specials for the kids in the Popular Alm Bistro, the Kids Club is the perfect way for kids to feel included. When you next visit, ask the friendly staff how your kids can join so they don’t miss out.

The Pony Trots program, designed for children aged six to 16 years old, is a great way for the kids to get involved with their pony and to 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 improve their skills.

With so much fun for adults, kids and the family Tabcorp Park is the place to be for racing, entertainment and more.
