SeaLink Kangaroo Island Racing Carnival

Community Event

14 Feb 2019 to 16 Feb 2019

The SeaLink Kangaroo Island Racing Carnival is a ‘must do’ on the South Australian event calendar. The Cygnet River Racecourse comes alive with great country racing on Thursday 14th and Saturday 16th February 2019. Thursday is a casual race day, but Saturday is when race-goers like to dress up in true racing style and enjoy the trackside entertainment, colourful marquees, fashion on the field competition and the abundance of local Kangaroo Island food and wine.

And why not buy a seat in the much sought after Kangaroo Island Cup Long Lunch trackside marquee on Saturday 16th February. Enjoy a stunning 4-course menu accompanied by a selection of Dudley Wines and beers. From $199 per person, but book early as tickets to this lunch event sell fast! (NOTE: Ferry/coach transfers available for extra cost)

Race-day packages including coach and ferry transfers are available for the Saturday race event only. A great option if you just want to go for the day is to purchase a KI Cup Package including return coach and ferry transfers from Adelaide, race-course entry, plus you can add the option of the Kangaroo Island Cup Long Lunch. Packages start from $189 per adult / $86 per child.
