The Oakbank Racing Club only holds races twice a year, on Easter Saturday and Easter Monday. First held in 1876, the carnival is now the biggest picnic race meet in the southern hemisphere.

This colourful poster from 1916 advertises the Easter Monday race. The Library's copy of the poster is a facsimilie of the original
