Lock Cup

Sunday, 14th February 2021

Valentine’s Day!

11am- 5pm


Lock lies right at the heart of the Eyre Peninsula, 300 km southwest of Port Augusta and 606 km northwest of Adelaide via the Princes and Eyre Highways.

It is a typical Eyre Peninsula wheatbelt town operating as a grain hub and service centre for the surrounding cereal and sheep farmers.

Lock Race Club will be hosting its 55th race meeting in February 2021, at the picturesque McLachlan Park racecourse, 10km north of Lock.

Appropriately named 'The Oakbank of the West Coast', visitors experience a family-friendly, relaxed picnic atmosphere surrounded by stunning green lawns, shady trees and undercover shelter.

Races can be observed from our entirely lawned viewing mound, providing full vision of the racecourse.

Catering to a crowd of all ages, both from local surrounds and visitors from afar, the Lock Cup is a fantastic event for everybody!

Our very popular 'Fashion At The Races' will be returning again this year for all the ladies and gents including ‘Best Race Day Hat’ while kids are free to play in their shaded play area which includes a sandpit, ride-on toys, tractors, playhouse and large games suitable for all ages.

A refreshing PIMM’s bar will be there again this year and full catering will be available throughout the day from North Shore Event Catering providing food and drinks, L.A.D.S providing garfish and chips, and The Little Coffee Pot for all your sweet treats and coffee.

Gates open 11 am
