30 things for the kids to do for $30 entry at Oakbank

There’s so much to love about Oakbank Easter Races already! But in case you need reminding about how family-friendly the races are - we’ve compiled 30 things for the kids to do for your adult $30 general admission entry on Easter weekend. Remember - kids under 13 are free.

Giddy up, hope to see you at the Oakbank track!


  1. BYO – everything!

Oakbank Racecourse is the only race track in South Australia where you can bring in food and drinks (including alcohol). To keep the costs down, why not pack a picnic basket for the kids, a bottle of wine and some beer for the parents.

  1. Visit the stables and see the horses
  2. Face painting


  1. Watch the horses race past

We all know kids love horses – but imagine the excitement as they sit along the track and see how close the horses race past. The best thing about Oakbank is the ability to sit inside and around the track.
