Be Warned: this is not a typical race day. There is much more emphasis on the 'party-sphere' than the actual event (races or fashions). This, is the day, Eagle Farm transforms into a music festival and DJs from across the country.
So, while it may not be everyone's idea of fun, you certainly don't have to like the Ekka to attend! And it is a great excuse to done your fancy attire and party hats or fascinators.
