A popular venue for locals, day trippers and weekenders who want to experience the true beauty of the Mornington Peninsula whilst experiencing traditional picnic racing. The six race meetings are held annually from November to April, with live music, free kids’ activities and on course food and bar options. Racegoers can bring their picnic alternatively marquees and roped-off areas ideal for corporate functions and birthdays can be booked online.
