Aug 12 – Aug 16 all-day

Race Week comprises of the Kiwani’s Race Ball Wednesday 12th, the Carbine Club Friday 14th and the Kiwani’s Race Day on Saturday 15th of August.

You can come for a week and bring your ball dress and your boots and hat for the races.  

Race Day in Vanuatu is more like a tropical version of the Australian outback’s Birdsville than Melbourne’s own Flemington, but the party atmosphere beats both iconic events hands down. As the only horse race in Vanuatu, the annual Kiwanis Charity Cup attracts 10,000 hardy souls to a makeshift course on the outskirt of town. On paper it sounds like a hellish place, but the track is gorgeous and awash with colour on race day.
