Great Northern Darwin Cup Returns In 2022
The Northern Territory's biggest social and sporting season returns in 2022, seeing over 40,000 racegoers enjoy all the colour, fashion and excitement of thoroughbred racing in the Top End across eight days.
Darwin Turf Club chief executive officer Brad Morgan said that with borders open, interest from interstate guests has reached unprecedented levels for this time of year.
"It is very exciting to see such unprecedented interest from interstate, and we have been fielding upwards of 20 calls a day with people enquiring about the Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival, a testament to what a great event this is for the Territory," he said.
"Events including the Bridge Toyota Ladies Day Function, Ladbrokes Let's Talk Racing Luncheon, Sportsbet Gala Ball and the Great Northern Darwin Cup will again be popular amongst punters, so I urge people to not hesitate in buying their tickets as we are expecting another complete sell-out."
Mr Morgan also added that new inclusions from last year will only be enhanced further, giving even more patrons further opportunities to enjoy Darwin Cup Day.
"After the successful addition of The Paddock last year, capacity will double in 2022 and feature DJ entertainment, lounges, food trucks and market umbrellas during the day, before turning into the ideal after-party location for all patrons immediately after the running of the Cup."
The 2022 Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival is set to take place from Saturday 2 July until Monday 1 August 2022 with tickets on sale NOW. Check out the full carnival program and tickets below.
