Sydney Carnival: The Fun’s Not Over Yet

Sydneysiders are in for a final treat for Sydney Carnival this weekend at Royal Randwick with Schweppes All Aged Stakes Day.

Just when the Championships wrapped up and you thought things couldn’t get any better (for a while anyway), Sydney Carnival is set to deliver one last treat this Saturday. Schweppes All Aged Stakes Day is going down at Royal Randwick this 15 April and in our humble opinion there isn’t a better way to spend Easter long weekend Saturday when the weather forecast is looking this fine (again – allelujah!).


Here’s your brief for the last day of Sydney Carnival (AKA Shweppes All Aged Stakes Day):


Dress up

After the excitement of the Fashion Chute winner being chosen on the weekend, the fashion buzz is running high at Royal Randwick. Join the fun and make the most of your last opportunity for a while to get kitted up in plush autumn race wear.



Royal Randwick is known as a haunt for Food trucks such as Greek Street and Cantina Movil if you know what I’m sayin’. Or, seeing as the sun is tipped to turning up on the day, there’s nothing like an autumn picnic. Split a gourmet picnic hamper between four friends or if you’re feeling organised take your own. Don’t forget the Easter eggs!

Treat your squad to a bottle of Moët, or try one of Randwick’s smooth signature cocktails such as the Randwick Royale (mmmm…..).


Have a flutter

Try your luck with a few cheeky bets on some world class Group 1 racing. If you have no idea what you’re doing when it comes to placing a bet, don’t worry, we got you.



DJs around the course on the day will keep you bouncing, especially after the last race when you can really let your hair down.


Kick on

Don’t let the festivities end when you walk out the gate. Get yourself to one of these venues for killer times well into the evening (and wee hours).


Schweppes All Aged Stakes Day is happening Saturday 15 April 2017 and you can get your tickets here. Don’t forget, you can use your Golden Carnival Pass if you were wise enough to purchase one of these back in March!
