Warrnambool May Racing Carnival

One of Australia’s hallmark country racing events

Produced by the Warrnambool Racing Club, this three (3) 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 CBD, the Warrnambool Racecourse has been home to racing since 1847, when the first settlers arrived.



The carnival is a celebration of country racing and is famously held mid-week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. It features 23 flat races and 7 jumps races, including the internationally acclaimed Grand Annual Steeplechase, first held in 1872 and remains the longest and most celebrated of its kind in Australia.

Ambassador Travel’s Warrnambool Tours have thrilled thousands of clients over the years creating spectacular memories, new friendships and racing excitement.
