Hophaus Annual Dachshund Races


Hophaus Dachshund Races was part of our 2018 OktoberFest Celebrations.

The races and costume parade were held at the Southgate Podium Level where heats started at 11am, finals and then finished with the Costume Parade.  An amazing day of fun to watch the gorgeous dachshunds run down a 18 meter long track – you should see them go!    And you should have seen the costumes!!

This year we raised $3,440!!   Bringing our total raised since 2015 to $13,690 for Dachshund Rescue Australia.

Who knew this would be sooooo pawpular!!
