Live in the summer sunshine.

Summer will be in full swing when you join the crowd at our third twilight meeting of January, featuring the Listed Kensington Stakes over a fast five furlongs.

Gather your crew and head to Flemington for the relaxed summer vibes.

Cold brews in the Front Lawn Beer Garden, super-fresh food served straight from awesome food trucks and live music will enhance the thrilling action trackside.

Relax amongst our famous rose gardens on The Picnic Lawn, with acoustic tunes, family-friendly lawn games and an outdoor cinema - it’s the perfect spot for summer social gatherings.

If you are tuning in from home, catch all the action live from the track via our partners:, RSN and TAB.
