GC Turf Club hosts event to mark NAIDOC Week

We’re being given the chance to celebrate the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival season and mark NAIDOC Week at the same time.

The Gold Coast Turf Club will host a day of racing, fashion, fun and culture this Saturday July 9.

The Gondwana Wines Cultural Race Day has been created by Gondwana Wines to showcase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage, arts and business innovation and to celebrate the cultural diversity of the Gold Coast.


The program will include a full day of racing action, with a $40,000 feature race, along with trackside entertainment by local band Occarock and eXcelsior Dance Group, plus a ‘Fashions on the Field’ competition with first-class, luxury prizes on offer for Best Dressed Male and Female.

Talented Indigenous actor and businessman, Michael Tuahine, will MC the corporate event with legendary Indigenous jockey, Darby McCarthy, guest of honour and keynote speaker.

Guests at the corporate event will be treated to an exquisite three-course Indigenous-inspired menu, with matching Gondwana wines, and will also have the opportunity to take part in a fun and lively auction of Indigenous art, celebrity sports memorabilia, luxury holiday packages and more.

Proceeds from the race day will go to fund a number of local Indigenous organisations.

The Gondwana Wines Cultural Race Day is proudly sponsored by Premium Project Services, Anderson Recruitment, Turner and Green, Atmosphere New Homes and HBG Consulting.

Gates open at the Gold Coast Turf Club at 10am on Saturday, July 9 with $12 general admission tickets available at the gate.
