Royal Randwick Racecourse

Royal Randwick Racecourse is a popular location for horseracing – tucked away in the city’s eastern suburbs. It is, without a doubt, the gem in Sydney’s racing scene.

It has earned popularity over the years as the epicentre of all things racing, culture, cuisine and fashion. This racecourse marks the location where the ‘Sport of Kings’ is hosted every year.

Royal Randwick Racecourse, Events, Parking, Address & Accommodation

The racecourse comes alive every year during the annual Sydney Carnival, as well as the Spring Carnival. Depending on the time of your visit, ensure you look out for the Chinese Festival of Racing, which is a great cultural event.

In addition to these yearly events, the racecourse also hosts The Championships. This is a two-day meeting held in April which features races that include the Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Australian Derby.

For a racecourse whose history dates back to 1833 when the first race was held, today’s world-class venue is Sydney’s premier playground for race-goers. As one of the country’s main racing venues, Royal Randwick has continued to shape Australia’s culture for close to two centuries.

The racecourse features the Queen Elizabeth II (abbreviated QEII) Grandstand which is the main building on site. It was first built in 1969 but had to be rebuilt in 2012 to maintain its structural integrity. Other key spaces include the Official/Members Stand, the Owners Pavilion, as well as the Theatre of the Horse.

The racecourse also boasts more than 35 restaurants and bars to cater for racing enthusiasts. If you’re looking for a memorable culinary experience, then the reserved dining establishments are a great place to be. In addition to horse racing, the racecourse has also hosted different musical concerts, festivals and events.
