  • Good place, a bit expensive to get in. Overall the placd is neat and clean and offers a wide range of services for enjoying yourself.
  • Good for taking a walk. Nothing really special. There is a tunnel underground leading to the middle of the racecourse.
  • Went for the woodworking show. Free parking a few blocks away (on grass). Overall, the place feels pretty dated - dark and oppressive.
  • I was only there for work, but it is a superb venue for the Spring Racing Carnival. Boasting any number of food and drink outlets around the course, you're never too far from a quick snack or something more substantial.
  • Superb events and not too expensive. Kid friendly.
