May Racing Carnival

The Warrnambool May Racing Carnival is the biggest country racing event in Australia, and with good reason.

People flock in droves to Warrnambool to share in the excitement of the action and the social spectacle that this authentic racing carnival creates.

Three days of horse racing, food and fashion culminate in the Grand Annual Steeplechase, first held in 1872.

The track for the steeplechase incorporates stretches of open paddock, creating a unique challenge for jockeys and an unrivalled experience for spectators.
