Sandown Racecourse

The premier entertainment complex in Melbourne's south-east, Sandown is situated 25 kilometres from the city along the Princes Highway.

Blessed with one of the finest racing surfaces in Australia, Sandown is an undulating course which has been redeveloped through 2002 into a dual circuit venue - with the individual tracks known as Lakeside and Hillside.

Sandown's premier race day is the Sandown Classic meeting, also featuring the Sandown Guineas, which concludes the Spring Racing Carnival in Melbourne.

Sandown is most associated with Motorsport and Horse Racing, there are several other features on the premises of note, including:

-:- Quarantine Station
-:- Function Rooms
-:- Sandown Overpass Billboard
-:- Infield Lake, Reservior & Waterway

Motor Circuit


The Motor Circuit is 3.1km in circumference, and features 13 turns. One of the key features of the circuit is an exciting back straight which leads into a very fast entry into Dandenong Road corner.

The circuit is used for six major Motorsport events each year, including the Sandown 500, Victorian State Circuit Racing Championships, Historic Sandown and the Easternats.

Over 30 days a year, mostly on weekends, the Circuit is hired by Limited Car Clubs, while the majority of week day hireage is taken up by Driver Education and Corporate Drive Days.

Function Rooms


Sandown offers a wide range of different facilities, rooms and areas available for hire. Located on the ground level of the Grandstand, the Multi-Purpose Room is the perfect facility for your next conference or trade show event. Equipped with ceiling high double door for large vehicle entry, two main bars, capacity for over 1000 people.

Quarantine Station


Operated by Racing Victoria Ltd (RVL), the Sandown Quarantine station was originally built in 1997. Due to the increasing demand of International horses entered in the Spring Racing Carnival, an extra station was added in 2001.

Some of the world's finest thoroughbreds have passed through the Quarantine as part of internationally acclaimed Spring Racing Carnival. Names such of the past such as Vintage Crop and Vinnie Roe, and in 2006 the two Japanese horses Delta Blues (3rd in Caulfield Cup & winner of the Melbourne Cup) and Pop Rock (2nd in Melb Cup) are notable achievers who called Sandown their temporary home.
