While there'll be a rather lavish $13 million on the line, the Everest Carnival's headline day offers plenty of action off the track with food, drink, live entertainment and, of course, the infamous fashions.
Held Saturday, October 13 at Royal Randwick, The TAB Everest Day will host various pop-up bars and lounges, including the Heineken 3 shipping container and the Gordon's Pink Gin bar. When hunger strikes, pop down to the Royal Randwick's casual dining precinct, The Mews, where a bevvy of food trucks will be serving up Vietnamese eats, burgers and juicy American barbecue.
And those dressed to impress can also take part in the Harrolds Fashion Chute, the Everest Carnival's fashion competition that could have you jetting off to Europe for free. Do your best modelling and get your photo taken on the Octagonal Lawn to go in the running.
Don't disappear at the end of the day either — former One Direction star Liam Payne will be performing a 45-minute concert for all Everest Day ticket holders.
