Tropical holiday to be won at Alexandra Park

Tropical holiday to be won at Alexandra Park

A fantastic trip to Vanuatu for two flying Air Vanuatu and staying at Mangoes Resort & Restaurant is up for grabs next month at Alexandra Park.

On Fridays 13 and 27 October, Alexandra Park is hosting its popular Tropical Nights from its Top of the Park venue, with dining packages ranging from $60 to $120 per person.

“Our executive chef has designed a sumptuous tropical-inspired buffet menu. Coupled with outstanding views over our track, these evenings will deliver exciting harness racing and plenty of atmosphere,” says Danielle Upton, Sales & Events Coordinator at Alexandra Park.

Everyone who buys a Tropical Night ticket goes into the draw to win a trip for two people to Vanuatu thanks to Air Vanuatu and Mangoes Resort & Restaurant.

“It’s a fabulous prize and given the relatively limited number of tables and tickets available for these two Fridays, all Tropical Night attendees have a good chance of winning.”

The winner of the Vanuatu holiday will be drawn and announced during the race meeting on Friday 27 October.

Alexandra Park is delighted to have its competition sponsors back on board. At Air Vanuatu ‘The friendliest smiles in the Pacific await you!’ While Mangoes is all about ‘Turning dreams into tropical reality’

As well as an all-you-can-eat buffet, the Top of the Park packages include free entry to Alexandra Park, free parking and free race-books. The evenings start from 5.30pm.

Situated on the fifth floor, Top of the Park is Alexandra Park’s premier venue. With floor to ceiling windows it boasts the best views in the house.

In November and December, Alexandra Park will host eight Christmas At The Races hospitality evenings. Bookings are already strong, with the Christmas events set to take place on Fridays 17 and 24 November and 1, 8, 15 and 22 December as well as Thursday 30 November and Saturday 16 December.
