  • Gloucester Park is harness racing is definitely one of the best nights you can have in Perth, especially when they have the fireworks on. We went with a few friends and had a meal there (Roast dinner). Was average in the food department but as a whole we had a good time and would go back again. The location is really nice too as we went for a walk along the river after and could see the Optus Stadium on the opposite side of the river. Entry price to Gloucester Park is very reasonable & wont break the bank. If you drive there, then there is plenty of parking nearby.
  • We went along with family and expected a bit more from the upgraded drinks package, we had to pay for spirits which we hadn't realised. The food was nice and staff were helpful especially the lady taking the bets, if your unsure they take time to explain how to bet. It was a very quite night.
  • Great spot close to the CBD, with amazing views of the new Optus Stadium. Was there for a non racing event. Friendly staff.
  • Was great fun. Very entertaining. Good facilities great roast for dinner at Steelos. 1st time back in about 18years look forward to a next time.
  • Absolutely fabulous night out. Fine food reasonable prices and great atmosphere
