Important event information

Large crowds are expected to attend the All Aged Stakes Day at Royal Randwick. Traffic will be heavy on roads in the area so attendees are encouraged to take advantage of public transport travel included in their event ticket. If you are planning on driving, allow additional travel time.

Valid pre-purchased event tickets include travel to and from Randwick Racecourse on the following public transport services:

  • Train services (bounded by Bomaderry, Goulburn, Bathurst, Scone and Dungog stations)
  • Regular bus services
  • Express special event shuttle buses
  • Sydney Ferries and Newcastle Ferries
  • Sydney and Newcastle Light rail services

Remember to keep your event ticket safe for your return journey or you’ll need to use your Opal card or accepted contactless payment method as you must have a valid ticket when travelling on public transport. Your event ticket is valid on public transport until 04:00 the following day.

Note: an additional station access fee applies for travel to or from Domestic and International Airport stations. Your event ticket does not include the access fee, so if you're travelling from these stations you'll need to pay the train station access fee.
