Warrnambool May Racing Carnival

Spend a day in the fresh country air and watch some of the best horse-racing in the country at the Warrnambool May Racing Carnival. For real thoroughbred action watch the Flying Horse Bar and Brewery Grand Annual Steeplechase which is always a highlight at this annual three-day event.

Event Details

The Warrnambool Racing Club has been operating since 1858 and hosts up to twenty days of racing competition throughout the year. The Warrnambool May Racing Carnival is held from 5 May to 7 May 2015 at the Warrnambool Racecourse in Victoria. All three days of the Carnival are action packed with quality racing, exceptional catering and great entertainment.


Local Attractions

Spend an extra day or two venturing out into Warrnambool’s district and visit the Warrnambool Visitor Information Centre for a complete guide of what you can do while in the area. Keep the competitive spirit alive and take a friend or group with you to the Warrnambool Golf Club.

View Warrnambool from high in the sky as you fly in the various scenic flights available at Air Warrnambool. Check out the Warrnambool and Great Ocean Road Tours to see the spectacular coastal views that are renowned the world over.

The whole family will love Silverton Park Indoor Go Carts to zoom around the track. For those more inclined to relax along the coastline, why not pack up a picnic of local produce and spend an afternoon whale-watching with your loved ones?


Volcanic Spectacular

For a real adventure, a trip to Tower Hill will keep the family amused as you see the volcanic crater in its full form. A volcanic eruption occurred roughly 30,000 years ago creating the outer rim of Tower Hill. The island-hills inside the crater are a wildlife reserve with an array of wildlife including emus, kangaroos, koalas and native birds. Follow a self-guided walk and relax at the picnic and BBQ facilities.

For a real treat, join a 1 hour guided interactive walk by experienced guides who will tell you about the volcano, the local Aboriginal heritage, wildlife and flora. Photography enthusiasts will love the night walks on offer, as the magnificent sun sets from the rim of the volcano.
