KILCOY RACE Club is preparing for one of its biggest days tomorrow.

With 83 nominations for the Australia Day race meeting, it is going to be a celebration of national proportions.

The race track is in superb condition and, thanks to the volunteer workforce, the surrounds and amenities are in "tip-top" condition, race club president Con Searle said.

With big fields and the presence of a strong six-bookmaker betting ring, patrons and punters should have an exciting day.

"It's the biggest bookings we've ever had," Searle said.

"It'll be unbelievable."

For patrons travelling to and from the races, a bus service will be operating from both hotels in Kilcoy.

The Fashions on the Field will be a big feature of the day with spectacular prizes on offer for the best-dressed lady, gent and best hat.

The presentation and display of the innovative colour-in competition for school children will be a feature for families.

The display will be for all to see in the club dining room.

A big variety of Australia Day food will be available, including the famous Kilcoy Steak Sandwich, which will be in plentiful supply.

First race is at 1.05pm with gates open at 11am.
