stable stars fleurieu family twilight race day.

Posted: 27 December 2018

There’s something magical about a twilight race day at the beautiful strathalbyn race course.


Celebrate the beginning of a new year with an evening of family friendly festivities.

Picture this - it's a balmy summer evening in Strathalbyn, the sun is setting, you're settling in with a wine in hand while your kids are entertained as you take in the atmosphere of a spectacular horse race.

This twilight racing event kicks off at 2pm – Wednesday 2nd January 2019, first race at 4:15pm.

Family-friendly racing event, so you can pack your own picnic to have trackside. Too busy to sort the picnic?

Relax, we’ve got you covered as there will be food a-plenty, with food vans, cheese stalls and market stalls on offer.




This race day is a family-friendly event and we will be bringing the Stable Stars FREE kids club zone for children to enjoy. In this area you will find free pony rides with Archie and his friends, life size games, racing costumes for dress up, a colouring in area and our Stable Stars passport activities with games and prizes. Look out for the Stable Stars area in general admission to access these free activities – all you need to do is join Stable Stars to participate – this can be done before the day or on the day. For further details, go here.

Fairy Belle, from A Sprinkle of Magic will also be joining in on the kid activities and sprinkling her magic, along with kids painting.

The popular market stalls of regional produce, wares and the unusual will delight locals and visitors alike.

FREE entry for kids under 15 years old. Only $10 for the folks.
