Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival | 30 Mar & 1 Apr 2024

Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival 2024 in the Adelaide Hills.

The Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival has been a family favourite for generations. Take your own food and drinks onto the course, enjoy a picnic by your car and celebrate the Easter long weekend with family and friends.

The Easter Racing Carnival has been one of South Australia’s premier social and sporting occasions for almost 150 years, and the annual pilgrimage to the Adelaide Hills track is for many a family tradition that goes back generations. Racegoers can bring their own picnics and barbeques, and by the time racing begins the car park is awash with marquees, tents and barbeques as families and friends soak up the unique country racing atmosphere.  There are also onsite camping options as well.

Oakbank Easter Camping

Easter is back at Oakbank in 2024 in more ways than one with the Carnival again returning to the traditional fixture of racing and merriment on both Easter Saturday and Easter Monday.

For families wanting to stay over the long weekend at the campsite bookings are now open.  You can camp onsite overlooking the iconic race course, sitting around a fire enjoying your Easter with family and friends. All campers will need to purchase Raceday passes (U18’s free).
