Strathalbyn Racecourse is South Australia’s largest provincial racecourse that is located approximately 60 kilometres outside of Adelaide. Opened in 1922, the track is set amongst picturesque grounds of manicured gardens and expansive lawned areas.

The course proper is 1690 metres in circumference and features a home straight that is 340 metres long. It is known as one of the more difficult provincial courses, and is renowned for the hill on the turn into the home straight. In addition to the course proper, the course features such training facilities as an inner grass training track and a sand galloping track. It is meticulously maintained thanks, in part, to the fully automated irrigation system.
