The Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival has been one of South Australia’s premier social and sporting occasions for nearly 150 years, and the annual pilgrimage to the Adelaide Hills track is for many a family tradition for many generations.

It is the largest picnic race meeting in the world and more than 60,000 racegoers bring their own picnics and barbeques to the two days (Easter Saturday 20 April and Easter Monday 22 April), and even before racing begins the car park is awash with marquees, tents and picnic rugs as families and friends soak up the country racing atmosphere.

There’s nothing like a day at the races, and there’s nothing quite like a day at the Oakbank Easter Races in the beautiful Adelaide Hills.
