Summer Raceday

There's nothing quite like like a summer's day out at the races.

Bring the family & your favourite summer accessories – jandals, deck chairs, sun umbrellas, shorts and a picnic - and enjoy the great outdoors in a relaxing and fun atmosphere at the races.

We cater for all your food and beverage needs with plenty of delicious and hassle-free food options available on course or pack a picnic with your favourite treats (including any non-alcoholic, unopened drinks) to enjoy in any of our outdoor, public areas on course.


All bars close shortly after the last race, except the Winning Post Bar.  All guests on course are welcome into the Winning Post Bar at this time.

Free general admission

Rooms & spaces for private functions are available
