The Mackay Turf club hosts a range of mid-week and feature race days throughout the year. Following upgrades to the facilities, the Club boasts arguably the best racing surface in Australia.  The famed Strathayr surface is the surface of choice for Australia’s premier WFA event, the Cox Plate and is noted for its ability to cope with a lot of rain.  This means that there is little likelihood of any cancellations of meetings for inclement weather under most circumstances.

The outstanding Events Centre provides a unique racing experience; with glass walls positioned mere metres from the winning post.

Mackay Turf Club is equipped with full tote and bookmaker facilities, as well as a great dining experience with in house caterers and  a full liquor licence also allows for the complete entertainment experience in a range of locations on course.

Most of our race meetings are televised nationally, and some even internationally.  Each meeting will reach over 2000 hotels and clubs throughout Australia, with a sponsor’s name prominent in the broadcast. Race name sponsors also appear on form guides in many industry websites and newspapers across the country.  The SKY broadcast also reaches some 2 million homes in Australia.  The footprint of your sponsorship is unmatched by any other opportunity in the local region.

Horse racing and Mackay Turf Club has been part of the local community since the 1800’s and continues to play an important role in the economy of the city.
