Get Ready To Ride The Wave At This Epic Gold Coast Summer Carnival

Start planning your race day outfit and get hyped, because the races are back in action. Fashion, drinking, punting and friends—there’s no better way to celebrate summer and welcome in 2021. 

The Aquis $1.5 million Raceday is kicking off the new year in style this January and is set to be an epic day of drinking trackside, summer vibes and kicking off your heels (obvs). In its second year, the Aquis Raceday will be held on 9 January 2021 and is hosting two unmissable events— The Beach Club suits those looking to indulge in an luxurious experience, while The Palms is a punters paradise for the squad.

Do race day differently this year and escape to the French Riviera at the ultra-exclusive Beach Club in the Gold Coast Turf Club Event Centre. Sip Moët and Chandon Ice Imperial in comfort as you enjoy trackside views of the home straight. Best views in the house, we’re calling it.

The all-inclusive luxury dining experience will spoil you with a premium Moët and Chandon Ice Imperial beverage package, a deluxe seafood buffet, racecourse entry and reserved seating on tables of ten. Drinks will be flowing all day and get your fanciest getup out to suit the glitzy French Rivera theme.

You can also get among the action at The Palms—the fashionable two-storey pavilion is the prime spot to gather your squad and you can keep the good vibes flowing at the brand-new TAB Greenhouse, where you'll get to cool off with two complimentary bevvies.

Once you’ve lost your voice from cheering, have a boogie at the DJ booth, tuck into some delish snacks from local food trucks and chill in the shade at the cocktail style tables. Tickets sell out fast so grab your tickets ASAP to avoid disappointment — The Turf Club is going paperless this year with online ticket sales only and no tickets at the gate. 

So clear your calendar and get your hands on tickets, stat.
