Perth Racing offers Western Australia's only two metropolitan race clubs. Home to live thoroughbred racing, entertainment and events, you can enjoy an ultimate day at the races during your stay in Perth.
Ascot Racecourse, located only 10 minutes from Perth CBD, offers a sensational Spring Racing Carnival starting in October each year and closely followed by summer, twilight and autumn carnival racing through to May. As Ascot closes its doors, Belmont Park Racecourse kicks into gear providing plenty of winter racing action for locals and visitors alike.
If you are lucky enough to be in Perth across the Spring Carnival season, Ascot presents up to ten different Carnival dates, each offering a unique raceday theme. With quality thoroughbred racing, elegant and comfortable surroundings, great food and drink options plus a variety of events and social activities, Ascot caters for a broad range of tastes and price points.
Enjoy fine-dining at the superb Flying Colours Restaurant overlooking the track and the Swan River from the comfort of your reserved table on the Member Floor. If you’re after a casual day out, the popular Picnic at Ascot provides the best spot to take in all the action and atmosphere with a generous picnic hamper, reserved table and umbrella.
Then during winter, head to Belmont Park Racecourse for a jam packed calendar of first-class winter racing, located right next door to Optus Stadium and a short distance from Crown Perth.
