Hawkesbury Racecourse



The Hawkesbury Race Club is a prominent country race club located just 65km west of the Sydney CBD between Richmond and Windsor. The track was built from 200 acres of bushland in 1865 and the first race meet was held in 1871. In 135 years, the race club has managed to create a fantastic race track which attracts renowned trainers such as Gai Waterhouse and her horses.

Situated directly opposite the Richmond Air Force Base, the race track is 2070 metres in circumference with a slight rise from the home turn to the winning post. The straight is 380 metres long and the track races clockwise with even rounded bends along the entire rail.

With the Blue Mountains and the Grose Valley as Hawkesbury Racecourse’s backdrop, the venue is ideal for conferences, meetings and weddings. There are two race meetings held each month, which mainly occur mid week on a Thursday.

  • Track Circumference: 2070 metres
