Family Race Day

Families are invited to kick off their long weekend with some trackside fun on Saturday 3 October with the club's annual Family Race Day. 

Families will have access to the trackside lawns where there will be plenty of shade and places to set up a picnic rug. Gates will open at 11am, with a $10 entry fee and children under 12 entering for free.

The kids will be kept busy with a free jumping castle, games and other activities while patrons can enjoy the racing action. Goodie bags, thanks to Townsville Family Life, will be given to the first 50 families through the gates. 

Kids' activities from 1 - 4pm
  • Jumping Castle 
  • Face Painting
  • Giant Games 
  • Prizes for the Best Dressed Kids 

Food and beverages for the whole family will be available on the day, so there's no need to bring anything other than your picnic rug. An external trackside bar will make the most of views of the track and winning post. 

For our members 

Members will have exclusive access to the Member's Grandstand and will need to RSVP to secure their place (limited to 2 tickets per member). 

Contact tracing will be conducted upon entry to our COVID-safe event.
