carefree atmosphere, bookies wont have a go, always some sort of entertainment on course but like most punters if you win, best place on earth if you loose mixed feelings , so if you look at the heading you know how I went

Whilst the meet was abandoned, a good day was still had. The CPR Bar is great set up. Quick service from the bar which is always pleasing.The only negative i could possibly raise, is the age of the TV's for betting purposes near the Bookies Ring. It's 2015, move with the times, update your technology.

Spent another day at the Turf Club. Screens around the track and betting facilities require and "Urgent" upgrade. It would also be recommended to provide shade sails on the Grassed areas in strategic placings for the grass roots race goer. Don't forget your sunscreen.

A group of us went here for the magic millions, we booked way in advance for a table at the skyline restaurant for the occasion which was very pricey but well worth the money. The turf club put on a fabulous event, the food was fantastic and just kept coming out, the drink service also was fabulous paying the extra... More

I am a member of the tuft club and attended my first Magic Million race day. Will never go again. It was a disgrace. I was abused by a man at the bar as I asked for a bottle of wine from the wine list that had to be sourced from out the back. The barman couldn't work the till.... More

We recently travelled up from NSW to the Gold Coast to the Magic Millions Carnival held annually at this old race track.. we were surprised at the race courses tired and antiquated facilities but moreover the squalid toilets and members area akin to an early Victorian era bear pit,with floors flooded in beer spills and acoustically deafening concrete interiors ...toilets...

Good provincial track that needs to upgrade its planning and infrastructure if it is to successfully host a major event like today's magic millions. I'm happy to line up for food & drink and only to a certain degree, toilets, but today was a joke. I left after the 3rd race and went to a pub.
