Sunshine Coast Racecourse



The racetrack at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club is a relatively new track located just 50 minutes north of Brisbane. The club held its first race meet in July 1985 with racing every Sunday. Friday night racing will be held this Summer for 16 weeks from and Friday 12th November 2010 through to Friday 25th February 2011. With 960 lights and 40 towers surrounding the track at night, the Sunshine Coast racecourse is a spectacle to be seen!

With sweeping turns and a great long straight, this is a fair track ideal for all horses.
