2014 Sydney Carnival at Royal Randwick

Maurice Terzini

Randwick gets a taste of Melbourne Cup glamour this autumn racing season.

The Melbourne Cup, as you may have heard, involves some horses running around a track. Some wagering goes on, too. But for many fun-loving Australians, the appeal of the racing carnival lies as much in the entertaining as in the races themselves, and it's with that thought firmly in mind that the BMW Sydney Carnival at Royal Randwick débuts a new look this year.

The Australian Turf Club is set to unveil a new marquee space modelled along the lines of the Birdcage, the VIP precinct at Flemington.

Top-name local chefs are being courted to produce Little Sydney, which will be populated with pop-up versions of some of Sydney's best restaurants.

Organisers are in discussions with Maurice Terzini, who is expanding his Icebergs brand into catering this year in a collaboration with Cherry Kitchen, along with the folk at Longrain as first starters.

So dust off your binoculars and feather your fascinator and we'll see you there.

The Little Sydney event will be held over two consecutive Saturdays: 12 and 19 April; BMW Sydney Carnival, 22 March to 26 April, Royal Randwick, Sydney, NSW.
