Melbourne, You’re Getting A Pop-Up Pool Party This Australia Day Weekend

This pop-up pool party announcement comes hot off the press as Caulfield Racecourse kicks off its transformation into one of the most anticipated sporting events on the calendar this month, neigh, season.

The Bondi Sands Pool Party on Saturday January 27 is not only one of the first major days of racing on the 2018 calendar, but it’s also the only one with a real life, dinky-di pop-up goddamn pool party (not to be confused with the awesome inflatable water park that’ll be stationed at Caulfield Racecourse until January 24).

What does a pop-up Bondi Sands pool party at the Caulfield Racecourse look like? Try relaxing pool-side summer lounges (oooh), live DJs dropping tunes on the deck all day long (aaaah) and a gourmet summer barbecue where chefs will literally be throwing shrimp on the barbie around the clock (SHUDDUP AND TAKE OUR MONEY!!). Quite honestly the day couldn’t get more ‘Straya if it tried.

Before we delve further into the details, let’s chat dress code. While talk of the races may conjure up images of painted supermodels with six-inch heels, ten-inch fascinators and hand-sewn couture cocktail dresses, guests are welcome to keep it glam but casual for the Australia Day weekend celebration, because quite frankly you can’t get more Aussie than that. Please no thongs or denim cut-offs though, this isn’t the tennis.

Please also note, before you start desperately searching Instagram for your next bikini, that the pool is for your eyes (and social feeds) only, because a photo of you looking sad and soggy at the races surfacing online could ruin your public [and Facebook] profile forever. So don’t be a Makybe Diva and cannonball into it while security’s getting a seafood skewer.

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again, this is going to be one helluva memorable Australia Day at the Caulfield Racecourse, so sashay over to the Melbourne Racing Club website now and book your spot at this summer’s raciest (literally) pop-up pool party. The drinks are cold, the horses are fast and the tickets are only a tenner.
