Outback Family Race Day

Community Event

1 Sep 2019

There’s nothing like a Family Day at The Races & celebrating the last meet for the 2019 Season!

A great day out with free kids entertainment including face painting and jumping castles!

Quality thoroughbred racing at its best. Spend the day with friends at Ian’s Western Hotel Saloon for an icy cold drink, and enjoy lunch watching the live action at the track.

Port Augusta’s central location sees it as the heart of thoroughbred racing in the Spencer Gulf, and its facilities make it a premier site for racing. With the majestic Flinders Ranges as the backdrop to the Port Augusta racecourse, it has become famous for its breathtaking view.

The Port Augusta Race Club is located only 5 minutes from the CBD and 30 minutes from the popular Flinders Ranges.

Packages are available on request for race days. Enjoy the day at the track with lunch from the Terry Gardiners Race Meat BBQ, featuring delicious Bultarra Yiros!

The club boasts exceptional on course televised racing, bookmakers, tote and racing hospitality at its finest.
