Goulburn and District Racing Club

Goulburn District Race Club is located on the picturesque Southern Tablelands of NSW and holds twenty race meetings each year.

We hold a strong passion for racing are known for our continued commitment to the development of a strong racing culture in a relaxed and rural setting, supporting the people who make their living from the industry.

The always competitive racing surface consistently attracts city, provincial and country trained horses. This not just because of our unique proximity to many areas within NSW but the quality of training and racing surfaces the club strives to offer. Along with its high class racing surface the site also boasts first class training tracks and currently hosts 100 stables on site, soon to be more.

November is our prime racing month with three meetings scheduled including our feature, The Goulburn Cup, valued at $150,000.  The race was first run in these parts in 1885.

As we move into the future the club and its board of directors remain committed to providing high quality thoroughbred racing, training and patron facilities that more than hold their own in NSW and Australia.

What our members have to say

A big "thankyou" to the staff and the Committee for the huge effort made for Spacky's race day. We all enjoyed the day and appreciated how great the grounds and reflection area looked. It was a wonderful day.


I just wanted to say thank you to you and the bar staff for helping create such a great afternoon. All the staff and kids really enjoyed themselves – I know mine particularly made good use of the mechanical bull


Can you please pass on our congratulations & thanks the Chairperson & Committee of the Goulburn Turf Club on the excellent initiative we experienced on Monday at the races with the inside area specifically allocated for Owners? Too often Race Clubs forget about visiting Owners, & on Monday the Goulburn Turf Club Committee made an extra effort to ensure this did not happen. The hospitality we experienced was very much appreciated & added to another fun day at the races for our Syndicate Members. Many thanks to all concerned.


Horse Owner
I am one of the joint owners of Martha Mary with my wife Joan and I attended the Club's Presentation Meeting on 15 August 2016. On behalf of my wife and myself I thank your Committee for the beautifully embossed rug provided to Martha Mary for being the joint horse of the year in 2015-2016. It was a wonderful gesture by the Committee in providing rugs for both Martha Mary and Ashjata and the presentation capped the highlights of our racing year with Immy and Martha Mary.
