Tour Details


The TAB Warrnambool May Racing Carnival is one of Australia’s hallmark country racing events and we’re making the trek down the Great Ocean Road to take it all in. We’re staying in the beautiful seaside town of Port Fairy, just 30 minutes from Warrnambool, and will enjoy a little look around the area before we hit the races.

Produced by the Warrnambool Racing Club, the 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. 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. This is Australian grass-roots racing at its finest!
