  • I had a great day up in the "Boardroom" function room, enjoyed great food/drinks/service. My boss even sponsored one of the races, which allowed us access right next to the track for that races and had our photo taken with the winning horse, jockey, the horse owner and trainer. A very exciting day out.
  • The Dome was okay. Delicious food. Decent spot to watch the races from. But I think horse racing is a cruel sport, especially when the horses are pushed to the point of blood noses.
  • Turf club has initiated the ethanisation of black swans and destruction of their hatchlings to make way for a carpark on what is now known as 'black swan lake'. They have no sense of community or environmental responsibility. Not only are swans to be murdered but countless other marine and bird life that call the lake home! There is already have an expansive car park area and the local community has clearly demonstrated their support for alternative transport such as shuttle buses. Turf club has council members in their pockets with many members sitting on the turf club board, including deputy mayor Gates. This place is toxic
  • Members & Owners Skyline Room the 4 course lunch was beautiful, staff were very friendly and we were right right on the finishing post.
  • Had a great day raising funds for Miami Surf Life Saving Club.....venue and food was superb, staff fantastic a top day was had by all.
