Racing at Gold Coast

A brilliant way to spend 4 hours on a Saturday afternoon. Good racing, excellent snacks and drinks. A short 10 minute drive from downtown Surfers.

They race here every week and at some mid weeks. The facilities for punters are excellent with a very strong bookmakers ring. There is plenty of food available and a great variety. If you enjoy your racing, this is the place to go.

Every time we have been here, its been with a group of friends or charity event and its always been fun. Its great to have an excuse to get all frocked up and pretty. The drinks are mid range in price and the members area looks straight over the finish line. Don't forget to put some money on the horses... More

I attended Magic Millions Day this year.Arguably the worst racecourse meeting I have ever been to and believe me,I have been to a lot.The Members Enclosure was devoid of air conditioning and was jam packed with yobbos intent on drinking themselves to death rather than watching the horses.Most of the day was spent in the vicinity of the horse stables...

Love the Gold Coast races! Nice and relaxed and the staff and security are really easy going unlike some major race events like Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane. Its never too long a line for the toilet or to get a drink so its always a fun day, good for big groups too!

Drinks were plentiful and the bar staff very attentive and very, very pleasant. For an all in price it was great value for the money. Previously we... More

My partner and I recently attened a race meet at the Gold Coast Turf Club. The bars are understaffed. You can only smoke in a a few fenced off areas. These are out of the way and resemble small pig pens. If you place your bet at the TAB on the lawn you can't cash it in at the TAB... More

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
