Donning an oversized floppy hat or fascinator, towering wedges, and heading to the race track to get buzzed in the sunshine is a right of passage for any Aussie.
There’s really nowhere else in the world where this cultural trait is embraced with such swagger.
That’s where Polo by the Sea steps in.
The McLaren Gold Coast Polo By The Sea will see polo riders and their trusty steeds showing their skills on the field in a gentleman’s sport that’s fit for royalty. There’ll be marquees with flowing bubbles and canapés, live DJ tunes, opportunities to mingle with the polo riders, plus the popular divot stomp (yes, just like Pretty Woman). All set to a backdrop of yachts bobbing on the glittering Broadwater. Where do we sign up?
Tickets to the QT Polo Lounge are $85 which gains to entry to the event, live music and chance to mingle with the players. But if you want to treat yourself, splurge on the Main Beach Lounge. Your $228 ticket will score you a gourmet lunch, Bird in Hand still and sparkling wines, beer, and cider, as well as water views, polo action, great company and DJ.
When: Saturday 1 June, 11:30am to 5:30pm
Where: Doug Jennings Park, The Spit, Main Beach
Cost: Tickets start at $85
