The Woolamai Racecourse is in a pretty country setting at the foot of the hills with views over the surrounding farmland. It is a nice, easy drive from Melbourne and a fantastic area to stay for the weekend with the coastal resorts on Phillip Island and along the coast to Inverloch, all within a 30-minute drive.

Racegoers enjoy an abundance of shade thanks to majestic old elm trees. Picnic tables are available if you are one of the early arrivals, or you can bring a rug and sit on the lawn. Alternatively, you can book a table and umbrella on ‘The Hill’ or in the ‘Birdcage’ and enjoy premium views of the action. The Pavilions or Marquee areas are popular for those wanting to entertain guests in a private space.

Children are entertained with face painting and kids activities, plus it is an excellent place for them to run around and have some fun. There are also two bars and two kiosks, run by local sporting and community groups that sell various food and drinks at reasonable prices.

The event is described as a ‘Picnic Race Day’, making it a more informal option than the elaborate dinners and champagne you may associate with larger race days held in Melbourne over the Spring Racing Carnival. Picnic tables are available if you are one of the early arrivals, or you can bring a rug and sit on the lawn area.

Patrons can BYO alcohol and food; however, glass bottles and sharp knives are strictly prohibited.

There are usually six races at the Woolamai Cup, the first commencing at approximately 1pm and the last finishing around 4.30pm. For those who like to bet, there are bookmakers on site where you can place your bet, a TAB, and Sky TV channels where you can catch all the up-to-date racing information.
