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.

Great day out, good reason to get suited up and have a punt, however not enough undercover area and long lines at the food/drinks bar

Great venue, great location, great day. We loved the food, the options on course for dining, and we loved the cab rank that moved fast and furious.

The day started well with a courtesy bus for patrons, a great idea for visitors and an encouragement to attend the races. A nice venue and a great day out.

I counted 4 cockroaches on the floor and heard the F word used constantly! the majority of people there on the... More

I confess to being motivated to write this after the appalling experience at a race club in Sydney. Once more the adage about the familiar failing to be recognised for how good it is until you come up against the opposite. I am a regular visitor to the Gold Coast Turf Club. The facilities are excellent and have been designed... More

Booked a trip to the races and dined in the restaurant with a view to the course.. Staff were fantastic and I was most surprised at how good the food was too.. I can really recommend this.. Well done guys, The booking lady at the racecourse who organised it was great too. 10/10 all round..
