About

The Toodyay Race Club was founded in 1865 as a leading racecourse in the Avon Valley. Now their premier annual event, the Toodyay Picnic Race Day, is Western Australia’s favourite picnic race day. The popular event attracts the quality of trainers and gallopers seen at premier provincial racecourses.

The Toodyay racecourse is situated within the rolling hills in the beautiful Avon Valley. With picturesque views of the Western Australian countryside, the Toodyay Racecourse is undoubtedly one of the area’s most unique landmarks, all within an hour’s drive of the Perth metropolitan area.

For over one and a half centuries, the Toodyay Race Club has provided top quality racing and a meeting point for the community within the Avon Valley district. In 2015 the Toodyay Race Club celebrated its 150th anniversary, making it one of the oldest racing clubs in Western Australia.
