Street Art

ID18 Street Art activations will be a feature of our off track and community events, as they epitomise the entertainment and colour that Victoria offers to both its residents and its visitors. Plus, by incorporating the Food Trucks and Street Art concept on course at Melton, Ballarat and Cranbourne, we encapsulate the Victorian regions hosting ID18.

Pony Trots

ID18’s opening night will also unite the very best young talent Victoria has to offer in the Pony Trots Inter Dominion. With the Inter Dominion not being held in Victoria since 2008 it means that none of our future stars have before seen a stage as big as this.

It will be all on the line with ponies and drivers all vying for the six spots up for grabs on finals night. Ponies will be split up in to size categories with two ponies from each of the categories progressing through to the big dance to battle for the biggest prize of the season on four little legs.
