Magic Millions Carnival & The Gold Coast

Gold Coast

Magic Millions Carnival

The Magic Millions Carnival brings people to the Gold Coast each January from all over the world. Lovers of thoroughbred racing and breeding converge on the Glitter Strip for both the sales and the racing events. There are numerous events staged over the duration of the Carnival at various locations throughout the Gold Coast, and getting to and from the venues can sometimes be difficult.


Hire Cars Provide Greater Freedom and Flexibility

The crowds at all the venues are testament to the popularity of the Magic Millions. However, for visitors who are not familiar with the locations or the best ways to access their accommodation, arranging a reliable Gold Coast car hire means they are not relying on public transport. This gives them the freedom to explore the Coast fully and take advantage of everything on offer during this important tourism and racing event.

Alpha Car Hire has a range of late model, easy to drive vehicles available from their Gold Coast office. For the convenience of their customers, they are located a few minutes from the Gold Coast airport and they run a shuttle bus from the airport to their premises. This makes it easy for tourists just arriving to pick up their cars.

Popular Events at Different Venues Attract Crowds

The Magic Millions Carnival has a number of scheduled events running from early January to the feature event, the Magic Millions Race day, a week later. The Carnival is designed to have a broad appeal and an early event is the Gold Coast Turf Club Cocktail Party where we get our first glimpse of some of the fashion conscious patrons.

The next day, again at the Turf Club, is a Ladies Race Day and it is hard to decide who gets the most attention. The horses are in peak condition and beautifully presented as they parade before the adoring crowds. The ladies, not to be outdone, are also beautifully presented in fashion outfits that look as expensive as they are stunning. Style is the order of the day.

Magic Millions Sales Event Sees Staggering Amounts Paid for Horses

The Magic Millions sales event follows and this brings out the true thoroughbred lovers and their cash, to see who can outbid each other to buy next season’s winners. The highlight event is the Magic Millions Race day on the Saturday, and thousands of people flock to the racetrack to be part of this iconic event.

This carnival is an excellent opportunity for horse lovers to indulge their interest in their sport, and visit the Gold Coast at the same time. There is so much to see and do apart from the carnival events and the best way to get there is in an Alpha Car Hire vehicle.
