British travellers are encouraged to head to Burrandown this weekend to see how the Aussies do a day at the races.

Holidaymakers looking for a memorable day out are encouraged to check out the Burrandowan Picnic Races, an annual celebration of horseracing, which is taking place this weekend (May 7th).

Horse-loving Brits catching flights to Australia would be well advised to book their tickets to the race day, which includes five equestrian competitions as well as clay pigeon shooting.

At the end of the day you can enjoy a traditional Aussie barbecue, with rib fillet burgers and T-bone steaks on offer, while guests are invited to camp overnight at Burrandowan Race Track.

This traditional event has been run every year since 1922 and there will be prizes for the best dressed men and women, so be sure to pack your glad rags to be in with a chance of winning the top prize of $4,000 (£2,600).

Tickets cost $25 each for adults, under 18s go for free, while camping passes are available for just $5 each.
