The post-holiday blues are here and the sobering reality that we are back at work has settled in. Naturally, it’s time to draw our attention to the 2019 social calendar and focus on a new light at the end of the tunnel—Australia Day.
Melbourne Racing Club is pulling out the sun lounges, bean-bags and daybeds, whilst the life-guards are slip-slop-slapping and the bartenders are stocking up the bar in preparation for the launch of the Bondi Sands Beach Club.
Trackside at Caulfield Racecourse, the Bondi Sands Beach Club, complete with elevated pool deck, boasts more than just sweet views of all the Australia Day race action. The space will be full to the brim with a selection of refreshing cocktails, delicious food and plenty of entertainment from the Ash James Trio and DJs.
There will also be a fancy Aussie BBQ sizzling up a smorgasbord of gourmet delights, including Robbins Island wagyu brisket, Flinders Island salt grass lamb souvlaki, Borrowdale Free Range pork belly bahn mi Bao, flame grilled octopus salad, and more.
For the boujee foodie, the Black Caviar Restaurant will be open for racegoers to indulge in a more premium dining option, complete with unsurpassed views, amazing service and five-star dining.
No matter your Australia Day style, you can rest easy knowing that Melbourne Racing Club has the good times sorted—and you have all of Sunday and Monday to recover.
