Lovers of racing and great food and wine rejoice – the annual Kangaroo Island Gourmet Gallop is on Saturday 23 January, 2016 at Cygnet River Racecourse, Kingscote. SeaLink has released a race-day package so now everyone can tantalise their tastebuds while enjoying the excitement of live racing.
“The Kangaroo Island Gourmet Gallop is a favourite with locals. Entry is just a gold coin donation and the day combines great country horse racing with superb local Kangaroo Island food, award winning wines and live entertainment.
It’s also a really fun day for families who enjoy the picnic race meeting feel of this amazing event.” SeaLink Kangaroo Island Marketing Manager Julie-Anne Briscoe says.
SeaLink is offering a Gourmet Gallop race-day package from Adelaide, Cape Jervis, Penneshaw or American River.
The SeaLink Gourmet Gallop race-day package from Adelaide includes return coach travel to Cape Jervis, return SeaLink ferry and transport to the Kingscote Racecourse, and is priced at $152 per adult and $86 per child.
For those preferring to drive to Cape Jervis the Gourmet Gallop race-day package departing Cape Jervis is only $108 per adult and $62 per child and includes a return SeaLink ferry and transport to the Kingscote Racecourse.
SeaLink is also offering return race day transfers from Penneshaw and American River for those living or holidaying on Kangaroo Island. Return transfers from Penneshaw are $30 per adult and $18 per child and return transfers from American River are $24 per adult and $12 per child.
The six-race program is a colourful event which includes live music and DJ entertainment, marquees, picnic sites, face painting and games for the children.
Some of the Island’s best foodies will sell dishes on the day while exclusive Kangaroo Island wine and other beverages will help wash it all down. Proceeds from gold coin donations at the gate will go to the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS).
Along with the race-day package, SeaLink can offer a range of other options including self-drive holiday packages plus accommodation and tours for those who want to extend their stay and see more of the island.
