Warrnambool Racecourse

Welcome to the Warrnambool Racing Club, home of the internationally acclaimed Wheelie Waste Grand Annual Steeplechase.

The racecourse is situated on the eastern outskirts of Warrnambool, set in a picturesque valley providing excellent natural viewing platforms.

The Warrnambool Racing Club conducts 20 race meetings per season highlighted by feature racing in spring, summer and autumn.

All roads lead to the 'Bool' in the first week of May each year as the Club conducts the internationally acclaimed TAB Warrnambool May Racing Carnival.

The Warrnambool Racing Club strives to develop a vibrant and growing platform to display the thoroughbred racing industry to a worldwide audience. The Club is steeped in over 160 years of history and remains the jewel in Country Racing Victoria's crown.

Regular V/Line services will operate. In addition, there will be a special return service called the "Grand Annual Race Train' that gets customers to the racecourse in time for the first race and leaves after the last race on the final day of the carnival. All services are reserved. Free bus transfers to Warrnambool Racecourse will connect at Warrnambool Station. For more information, phone 1800 800 007 or visit the V/Line website.
