Ticket price:

  • $65 pp (incl gst)

  • Group of 10 & Auckland Racing Club members discount applies

It’s the night that’s on everyone’s lips and this sell-out location is the place to be.

If you’re looking for people-watching prospects & an excuse to let your hair down on Auckland’s million dollar night, the Garden Party is the precinct for you. 

Located within the modern surrounds of our Cuvée Bar which boasts of an expansive indoor / outdoor flow, you won’t get much closer to the horses who’ll be parading right beside you in the Birdcage before thundering past the winning post directly opposite (read: “amazing profile shot opportunities”).

We'll start the party off with a drink on arrival, will throw in a racebook so you can ‘track talk' like the pros and have delicious food available for purchase. 


All that’s left for you to do is gather the troops & get set for our million dollar party!


Home to the evening’s official on-site after party, this area sells out well in advance and so tickets will be allocated strictly in order of payment.

Package includes:
  • A drink on arrival

  • Racecourse & Garden Party admission, race book & pen

  • Cash bar featuring Champagne, selected standard & premium New Zealand still & sparkling wines, light & standard local & imported beers, cider, spirits & non-alcoholic beverages

  • Indoor / outdoor areas with unreserved, limited chairs & bar leaners in a bar environment

  • As the Garden Party is a very social precinct, only limited seating is available and it is on a first-in, first-served basis

  • Instant entry into the official after-party (held in this precinct after the last race)
