Kids Corner

We love welcoming the littlest racegoers on course.

We offer free outdoor activities in the warmer months and activity packs to keep them occupied during Winter.

Pick your free activity pack from the Raceday Office or keep an eye out for the swing ball and other activities on the main lawn from September to February.

The packs currently feature the Design Your Own Silks Competition, Activity Sheets, Crayons and some little treats.

What better way to celebrate your work or family Christmas Party than a day at the races?!

Whether you're looking to knock off early with the crew and join us for our Twilight meeting, want to round out the year by partying the weekend away at the SkyCity Hamilton Waikato Cup or the Lodge Christmas Raceday, or want to book a room for a non-raceday, private event, we have you covered.

We've got prices to suit all budgets and different packages to suit your style, so check the calendar and make a date with the team to host your Christmas Party in the hottest place in town.
