The Interislander Boxing Day races at Wingatui are a long standing tradition for hundreds of Dunedin families over the Christmas period. It’s one of the best racing events in the region and each year attracts a huge crowd of families who come along with their Christmas leftovers in a picnic and park the car up on the grass along the finishing straight. With free entertainment for the children it is a perfect event for the whole family.
