Canterbury Park Racecourse



Canterbury Park Racecourse is Sydney’s major midweek racing venue and home to the increasingly popular night racing. The track is only 15 minutes south-west of Sydney’s city centre and is run by the Sydney Turf Club. Although the racecourse is one of the closest racecourses for Sydney residents to access, it no longer features a racing carnival and is instead used for the midweek racing meetings. Occasionally the track will host a Saturday race meeting if Rosehill requires a break.

The clockwise track is considerably small with a circumference of 1567 metres and a straight of 308 metres. It suits horses that can lead or race on the pace. Overlooking the racetrack is a full enclosed air conditioned betting area.

  • Tack Circumference: 1567 metres
  • Racing Club: Sydney Turf Club
  • Address: Canterbury Park Racecourse, King Street, Canterbury, NSW 2193
