Rock on down to Sunshine Coast Turf Club to experience the electric vibes of The Avenue – a Palm Springs-inspired pink-and-green oasis of eats, sips, live music and fun times that’ll have you eagerly racing back for another visit, discovers Rebecca Jamieson Dwyer.

You might have attended previous Race Days at Sunshine Coast Turf Club, but we can guarantee you haven’t experienced anything quite like The Avenue!

This stunning new space has been meticulously designed for maximum wow factor: think pink decor, lush greenery galore, arched arbours for the perfect Race Day photo, live music, Fashions on the Field competitions, and culinary delights that’ll keep the good vibes flowing all day long.

Not only will this new area blow you away in the style stakes and elevate your racing experience, but admission is included with ANY ticket on feature race days – making it easier than ever to glam up, soak up your surroundings, enjoy quality entertainment, and make everlasting memories with your crew!

The Avenue will come alive on four not-to-be-missed feature Race Days of music, racing and fun in 2024: the 91.1 Hot FM Ladies Oaks Day on Friday 31 May; Caloundra Cup Day on Saturday 6 July; Melbourne Cup on Tuesday 5 November; and Mooloolaba Cup Day on Saturday 16 November.

First up, don’t miss the 91.1 Hot FM Ladies Oaks Day on Friday 31 May – a Race Day that combines the lively ambience of a festival with a passion for fashion and the thrill of thoroughbred racing! Revel in The Avenue’s thrilling atmosphere, courtesy of live music from Super Disco Club on the Main Stage, along with top DJs Emma Peters and Jake Webb who’ll keep the party going all afternoon and well into the evening.

Fancy being a VIP for the day? Join fellow merrymakers at the exclusive Red Hot Garden Party in The Establishment, which boasts luxuries including premium indoor-outdoor seating, trackside views, diverse bars, a food truck park with two vouchers, and intimate performances by Emma Peters and Jake Webb.

Or up the luxury stakes by booking your very own VIP Cabana within the Garden Party – a vibrant, open-air mini marquee for 10 people, with comfortable trackside seating on The Rails plus two bottles of G.H Mumm Champagne to toast your winning experience!

“The 91.1 Hot FM Ladies Oaks Day is one of our stand-out events for the year, and we’re so excited to be introducing members and attendees to the beauty of The Avenue and all it has to offer,” says Taryn Delaney, Marketing and Events Manager at Sunshine Coast Turf Club.

“From the Fashions on the Field competition showcasing the most gorgeous and creative looks, to the endlessly delicious eats and drinks on offer and the amazing lineup of live music from world-class talent, we know it’s going to be an event that goes down in Turf Club history!”

Taryn was previously at Flemington Victoria Race Club before making the move to Queensland with her young family, and has been collaborating with interior and event stylist Melanie Barone of The Style Dispensary – who she previously joined forces with at Flemington – for all Sunshine Coast Turf Club’s space designs and activations.

“Melanie’s an absolute creative force, and I love collaborating with her,” Taryn says. “Not only is Sunshine Coast Turf Club currently the world’s busiest grass track, with more races per year than any other, but it’s now one of the most exciting in terms of the stunning spaces and the variety of entertainment and events on offer!

“The SCTC team have worked hard to build this beautiful space, and we can’t wait to share it with people.”

It’s fair to say that Sunshine Coast Turf Club is off and racing for stylish celebrations in 2024! Giddy up!
