The South West Autumn Racing Carnival is back this year and better than ever. The carnival is an event not to be missed by all residents of real estate in Bunbury and visitors to the South West region.
Scheduled for the week kicking off March 10 and concluding March 14 are a number of events with thoroughbred horse racing at the centre of the action. The racing features include the crowd favourites APH Contractors Bunbury Stakes and the XXXX Gold Bunbury Cup.
This year's Bayside Beats concert, which wraps up the week's activities, will be headlined by Australian rock legends The Angels and include performances by Diesel and Mi-Sex.
"Events like the Bayside Beats concert should help raise the profile of the South West Autumn Racing Carnival and attract more visitors to Bunbury. They will also provide a fillip to local businesses and the tourism industry by encouraging people to stay in Bunbury for longer and explore the region," said Tourism Minister Liza Harvey in a March 7 statement.
Tourism WA's regional events program is supporting this year's carnival with assistance from the regional governments Royalties for Regions initiative. The royalties program is designed to support services and infrastructure in the region to improve liveability.
Event-goers should expect a fun-filled week of events and entertainment showcasing Bunbury as an exciting and active city to live and play.
