Three incredible events in Australia
Australia is an amazing place where there’s always something to do. From live shows to sporting events, visitors and residents of this island-continent have a variety of choices when it comes to live events
Racing Down Under
The sport of champions has always been very popular in Australia. This is why so many people choose to attend the daily Joseph and Jones Racing Race Day at Thoroughbred Park. The free admission is also partly responsible for the large crowds that attend. The legendary Thoroughbred Park is home to many horse races but the Joseph and Jones Racing Race Day is by far the most affordable.
The world’s finest horses are put on display for those who appreciate the thrill of equestrian racing. Though there’s no charge for admission, the Black Opal room is where the social elites will gather to gamble. Fortunately, admission into this exclusive room is a mere $15, and it’s only $25 to book a table. However, the running of the horses is the main attraction, and racing typically starts around noon. While horse racing is one of the premiere pastimes in Australia, there are other indoor events which also captivate the attention of large audiences.
An exciting live show
There’s no other experience like seeing the Disney Classic ‘The Lion King’ live. Fortunately, Sydney’s famed Capitol Theatre will be the scene of the magical show that has captivated audiences the world over. Simba and friends will grace the stage, giving audiences the opportunity to relive the epic tale. There are tickets available to see the coming of age tale which started as a motion picture and became a Broadway musical. This amazing experience features actors in remarkable costumes, gracefully moving to the music of Elton John. This timeless tale is one of Disney’s most famous, and any fan of the theatre will enjoy this amazing show.
The ICC World Cup
For cricket fans, Canberra, Australia will be the place to be in early 2015. The best cricket teams in the world will travel to Australia to determine which is the very best in the world. The Manuka Oval will host several matches for the International Cricket Council’s world cup of cricket. All fans of cricket will want to make their way to Canberra for all the excitement. Three matches will be hosted in Canberra, and each is expected to be especially entertaining. Bangladesh will take on Afghanistan on 18 Feb 2015, the West Indies will challenge Zimbabwe on 24 Feb 2015, and South Africa will challenge Ireland on 03 March 2015. The Nation’s capitol will be alive with excitement next February and March, as cricket fans descend upon the city to see their national teams compete for the ultimate Trophy in Canberra.
