Family Day

Families were treated to two fun-filled days dedicated to them at the 2017 Santos Tour Down Under.

Family Day

Enjoying the race action of the People's Choice Classic and Be Safe Be Seen MAC Stage 6, families were presented with an array of cycling-themed interactive activities.

Being track-side, familied could settle in for a picnic or select from an extensive range of great local food vendors.

Delicious food and drink was supplied by Fork on the Road, returning for Tour de Fork in Elder Park on Be Safe Be Seen MAC Stage 6.
