An impressive events centre capable of hosting more than 2,500 guests, the Aquis Park Gold Coast Turf Club is primarily known as one of Australia’s busiest racecourses while also being host to a large number of public and private events, from conferences and expos to gala dinners, exhibitions, holiday parties and more.
With gorgeous panoramic views of the Gold Coast skyline and all the most popular modern amenities, the Gold Coast Turf Club is home to an annual sprint race for the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival – called the Bat Out Of Hell – and has been since 1996. A 900 metre feature sprint race with participants traveling from far and wide from across Australia, the annual Bat Out Of Hell winner receives a $90,000 prize and a Harley Davidson as a trainer’s bonus, not to mention a custom award to showcase for themselves.
This year we were tasked with creating a a custom award for this unique honour, and faced the challenge head on with our team of dedicated and creative professionals. Designed to incorporate elements of the Gold Coast and broader Australian lifestyle, we chose native Australian timber from southeast Queensland to encapsulate the award, adding a mixture of printed acrylic to bring depth to the design.
Custom designed to include the iconic skyline seen from the Gold Coast Turf Club, as well as waves and sand elements that speak to the Goldie way of life, the award is a testament to the level of precision and thoughtfulness we aim to incorporate into all of our custom award designs.
We thoroughly enjoyed making this one-of-a-kind award, and look forward to assisting you with your next custom award need on the Gold Coast or beyond. Contact us directly at [email protected] to speak with us about your ideas.
