The Stawell Easter Gift is a 'Sheffield Handicap' that has been run since 1878 over a distance of 130 yards on Easter Monday in the goldmining town of Stawell in rural Victoria. It has unique features that hark back to another sporting era: the race is run on grass on a track that slopes very slightly up hill; white cords mark the running lanes; and the spectators sit in a grandstand dating from the eighteenth century. The race has a staggered start and is governed by a handicap system; the winner receives a cash prize; and the punters hope to make their fortunes.
