“A wonderful carnival of merrymaking, drinking, feasting and dancing”
– William B. Woodbury, Wyong Race Club’s first secretary
Today, Wyong Race Club offers provincial thoroughbred horse racing across 22 annual race days. We’re also one of the Central Coast’s leading function centres, hosting sponsored and fundraising events, galas, business meetings, trade expos, weddings, school formals and more. Would you believe our story began in a small, rural paddock?
Wyong Race Club’s origins date back to some of the earliest days of European settlement in the modern Central Coast area. The history of our racecourse begins back in 1875. With the oldest house in Wyong being Alison Homestead, settled in the 1870s, we have been growing with the local community for 150 years.
