Review of Gloucester Park

Reviewed August 24, 2012

Arrived at 8pm, really too late to get the best from the restaurant and track. But who would have thought 8pm was too late on a Friday night? Entry to the track was $10 per person, a very reasonable charge. However, the actual race track was almost deserted, while it is still winter, one would have expected more people. Have been a number of times during summer and is usually reasonably busy. The Beau Rivage restaurant is located on the second level of the main stand, we selected the buffet and charged $66 per person. As we were late arrivals, the food had been out for some time and past it's prime. We also purchased bottled wine from the bar, now while you expect restaurant wine charges to be higher, the charges are almost outrageous. They charged $46 for the Vasse Felix "Classic Dry Red" and while a nice drink, the premium charge is not warranted. The buffet is definately not worth the charge, while I might go back to the track in summer, I won't be going to this restaurant again. The views of the track are excellent from the restaurant, the river runs past the track so the river views are excellent too, even better after they switch the lights off after the last race. Unfortunately, the views arn't worth the cost of the restaurant - won't be going back to this restaurant again.

Great night out when it's hot, especially if you like the horses and enjoy a bet. Good to visit with friends.
Good restaurant there, can't think of the name of it though.

Home for harness racing in Perth. Beau Rivage and the Radiant Oro are the two main restaurants with high quality and standard. Attendance in winter is far less than during summer carnival. Firework display for New Year Eve and sometime Chinese New Year / Australia Day is organised.

If you're into the Trots then go no further than Gloucester Park. Cost effective nights entertainment with an array of eateries.

It should be noted that Gloucester Park is not an actual park, in the green lawns and plants sense. Rather, it is a horse racing track. I was nearby in the afternoon and went to take a look.
It might be a good place to lose a few dollars when the races are on. Otherwise, it is well secured and offers little more than a walk around the perimeter fence. On the north side you can catch a glimpse of the track if you are interested.
