Alexandra Picnic Meeting on Cox Plate Day

Sporting Events

23 Oct 2021 Annual Event

Alexandra Race Club opens the Victorian Picnic Racing season on Cox Plate Day.

Leave behind the rush and bustle of the city and celebrate the Spring Racing Carnival in the country. Punters are well served with Tote and Bookmakers servicing local, Melbourne and interstate meetings. Enjoy Marysville’s McBlues Celtic Jazz Band between local races.

Make a weekend of it, there is plenty to do, plenty of fresh air and over 2,000 beds worth of accommodation. Play golf at the very beautiful public courses at Alexandra, Yea, Eildon and Marysville. Meander through Alexandra’s Open Gardens on display all weekend. Go fishing, hire a party boat on Lake Eildon, bring your bike and ride the Great Victorian Rail Trail, dine out or follow a wine trail, walk the Cathedrals or go horse riding.

With so much to do give yourself a break and smell the roses at Royal Alexandra.
