Bet on a Great Caloundra Holiday
Make the most of life and leisure and bet on a great short break or holiday during a stellar program of racing, fashion, food and entertainment at the Anmel Cherrypicker Hire Caloundra Cup Carnival on the Sunshine Coast from June 29 to July 4.
The carnival is one of the region’s biggest social events of the year and combines all the thrill and excitement of high class thoroughbred horse racing with the chance to take a warm mid-year beach break.
Hosted by Sunshine Coast Turf Club at Corbould Park the carnival starts with a Breakfast with the Stars (Tuesday, June 29), and is followed by the barrier draws (Wednesday, June 30), a Calcutta Sportsman’s Luncheon (Friday, July 2) and then two fabulous days of racing over the weekend (3-4 July) that carries a total of $925,000 in prizemoney.
The chance to win a $2000 prize package to Melbourne Oaks at Flemington is up for grabs during the Fashions on the Field in the lead up to the Anmel Cherrypicker Hire Caloundra Cup on the afternoon of July 3.
Caloundra has fantastic accommodation not far from the Turf Club including the absolute waterfront resort La Promenade set amongst the lifestyle hub known as “The Waterfront - Caloundra’s Boardwalk”. Another centrally located choice is Centrepoint Holiday Apartments with cafes, shops, restaurants, boutique shopping, safe swimming beaches and a range of water sports just a stroll away.
Major attractions include the award-winning Australia Zoo, Aussie World family fun park, the Big Kart Track and Queensland Air Museum.
There are direct flights from Sydney and Melbourne to the Sunshine Coast Airport or fly into Brisbane then hire a car or use A1 Airport Transfers for the one-hour journey north to Caloundra.
