About

The Warrnambool May Racing Carnival is one of Australia’s hallmark country racing events. Witness history be made as they celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Grand Annual Steeplechase at this year’s event.

Produced by the Warrnambool Racing Club, the three day country racing carnival attracts thousands of racing enthusiasts every year to view Australasia’s premier jumps horses, immerse in the thrill of country racing, be inspired by autumn race fashions, and enjoy unmatched local hospitality. This is Australian grass-roots racing at its finest.

Its home is the Warrnambool Racecourse, located in the vibrant coastal city of Warrnambool, on Victoria’s iconic Great Ocean Road. Positioned in the heart of town, just two kilometres from the central business district, the Warrnambool Racecourse has been home to racing since 1847, when the first settlers arrived.
