What’s On: Blitz Golf, Easter racing and plenty of chocolate

Get out and about in South Australia this weekend and make the most of the Easter long weekend with chocolatier classes, horse races and feasts of biblical proportions.

Easter bunnies

Unleash your child’s inner chocolatier this Easter at the Barossa Valley Chocolate Company. On Good Friday, Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday, kids can join a 90-minute workshop where they will create their own chocolates and accessories to make a take-home Easter kit. There will also be free chocolate and gelati tastings at the Barossa Valley Chocolate Company Cafe and cheese, chocolate and wine pairings for the grown-ups in the Vineyard Road Cellar Door. Explore the range of handmade chocolate products made on site and indulge this Easter.

Making music

Pack a picnic and head to Sinclair’s Gully on Monday, April 18 for an afternoon of live music in the forest. Relax under the majestic candlebark gums as Netherby’s melodic guitar and deep vocals soothe your soul, starting at 2pm. Netherby is an independent singer-songwriter from Adelaide taking inspiration from Mumford & Sons and Vance Joy. The Sinclair Gully cellar door will be open with a range of wines to enjoy alongside your picnic.

Galloping ahead

Enjoy two days of racing at the picturesque Oakbank Racing Club with the 2022 Easter Racing Carnival on Saturday, April 16 and Monday, April 18. Food trucks will be set up trackside and there will be multiple bars well stocked with locally-crafted beer and wine. Watch the races to live music while activities and amusements entertain the kids. Autumn-inspired fashions will be on the field for this event, so exchange the straw hats and silk dresses for tweed, corduroy, cashmere in autumn country racing style.

Sips and seafood

Indulge in a long-table celebration of the finest wines and freshest seafood in the heart of the Clare Valley on Friday, April 15 with Kilikanoon’s Feast of Biblical Proportions. A curated four-course meal will be prepared by local chef Dan Moss of Terrior Auburn and paired with some of Kilikanoon’s finest wines.

Tee-rific tournament

The Blitz Golf League will bring a fast-paced, family-friendly tournament to the North Adelaide Golf Club on Monday, April 18. The event features a ten-hole golf tournament with 32 players including golfing greats, rising stars and local celebrities. Watch as the players blitz through rounds, each with higher stakes than the last, and soak up the sunshine with a new way to enjoy golf. Partnering with Fork on the Road, this full day of fast-paced golf will be accompanied by live music and deejays, pop-up bars, food trucks and showbags.

On track

Head to Clare for the Easter long weekend and enjoy a day trackside on Saturday, April 16 with the Clare Valley Easter Races. The day of local food and wine will begin at 11.30am, alongside a quality racing programme that gallops off at 1pm.
