Thoroughbred horse racing in Broome has evolved out of the dust and the Broome Turf Club has arguably become one of the most progressive race clubs in Australia, whilst still retaining a well loved country picnic atmosphere.
The Broome Turf Club is carved out of bush land at picturesque Gantheaume Point, just a stones throw from world famous Cable Beach. This idyllic location perched on the Broome peninsula is surrounded by the Indian Ocean and benefits from the constant cool breezes which are a welcome relief in the hot and humid climate of the Kimberley. In fact so unique is our location that the Broome Turf Club ws recently rated by punters.com.au in the their top 10 Stunning Racetracks You Have to See Before You Die.
Today the Broome Turf Club has transformed from its rustic ‘pindan’ roots into a relaxing, shady oasis. A day at the Broome races is an experience unlike most others, and one that many international tourists seek to repeat. A highlight of the tourism calendar in Broome, it is a place where members of the multi-cultural community mingle with visitors from far and wide.
The main attraction is competitive racing on the firm dirt track, which is well complimented by the highly social and community aspects of race days. A joyful and colourful scene, the clubs hospitality is enhanced by local and imported entertainment throughout the day and evening.
Set amongst the balmy tropical climate the post race party extends well into the evening with patrons reluctant to go home. A good time is had by all who try their hand at tossing the coins in the uniquely Australian game of two-up, or for those who choose to dance the night away to the sound of great live entertainment.
The nine week race season culminates in the highly anticipated Broome Cup Carnival. Incorporating a vibrant Ladies Day on Tuesday August 11th and Saturday 15th 2015- always a sensational Broome Cup Day - leaves punters yearning for the next years season. Everyone who has ever had the pleasure of experiencing the Broome races always returns, for this is truly ‘the winter racing alternative’.
Look forward to seeing you in Broome for the 2015 racing season…
