Racing glamour lives on at Melbourne’s historical horse racing site, Caulfield Racecourse. Since holding its first racing event back in 1859, Caulfield has earned itself a name as one of Australia’s premier racecourses.
Known locally as ‘The Heath’, Caulfield Racecourse is eight kilometres from Melbourne city, and offers stylish members facilities, such as the glass Rupert Clarke Stand, three restaurants for member dining, and trackside marquees.
The Caulfield outer circuit caters for 1,700 metre, 1800 metre and 2000 metre races, and hosts 20 race days in a season. Major Caulfield Racecourse events include the famous Caulfield Cup, as part of the three-day Caulfield Carnival in spring, and the Summer Classics Carnival.
To get there, take a 20 minute train ride from Flinders Street Station on the Frankston or Dandenong lines, or catch tram number 3 from Flinders and Swanston Streets for 25 minutes until you reach Stop 25.
