The Tambo Valley Picnic Races, held on the outskirts of Swifts Creek on the Great Alpine Road, have been entertaining crowds in the beautiful high country of Victoria's East Gippsland region for 120 years.

With a great value mix of exciting horse races, family entertainment, and good old-fashioned country hospitality, it's racing the way it's meant to be.

The Tambo Valley Picnic Races are a perfect way to spend Easter Sunday. Even better, turn it into a relaxing family getaway for the Easter long weekend. Hope to see you here.

Alpine racing – just magic!
