On the Track

It’s all about the Bridge Toyota Cup. Yielding an enviable $50,000 in prize monies, this is one of the Carnival’s most coveted pieces of silverware.

Off the Track

It’s a riot of colour as thousands of stunningly dressed ladies congregate on course in search of all the fun, fashion and frolics that Ladies Day presents. The Schweppes Pavilion is transformed into a secret garden, ready for a day of fabulous entertainment; Bubbles will flow accompanied by a divine luncheon. Hosted by Mix 104.9’s Ali and Greg, the highly anticipated event will sure to be a sell out on 2017.

With a career that spans music, screen, fitness and fashion, Barry Conrad, will be the main entertainment at the Bridge Toyota Ladies’ Day luncheon with dancing on the lawns with local favourites, The Kicks, after the last race.

The Darwin Waterfront Fashions on the Field launches into Carnival with a competition held both inside the Schweppes Pavilion and on course for general admission guests.

I’m a Celebrity Get me Out of Here contestant and male model, Kris Smith, will take to the judging panel for Darwin Waterfront Fashions on the Field, and Australian fashion designer, Petar Prodanovic will be back performing live illustrations throughout the day.
