Event Line Up
The action begins on Friday afternoon when the bar opens and leads into a night of socialising, local food, racing mini tin horses and dancing to live music.
Saturday is the main day of the Kulin Bush Races and everywhere you turn, you’ll find something to do: racing, live music, fashions on the field, kids' activities and great food. The night is capped off with an amazing fireworks display, which leads into the headline act on the main stage.
The Great Aussie Revival Breakfast on Sunday morning rounds off an amazing weekend.
The Kulin Bush Races is an event for the entire family; we provide free entertainment for the kids all weekend and endeavour to provide entertainment for every age group.
