Hanging Rock Racecourse

Hanging Rock Racecourse

Hanging Rock Racecourse is located at South Rock Woodend VICTORIA.

Hanging Rock hosts the biggest Australia Day race meeting in Victoria, such has been the emergence of the day in recent years.

It is one of Victorian country racing's biggest days so mark it in your diary for a truly remarkable experience.

Located just 5 minutes from the unique geological formation known as Hanging Rock, The Hanging Rock Racecourse is the place to be on New Year's Day and Australia day.

It's the only two days of the year the course holds races and the action never disappoints. The track has a maximum of only 1,400m with a straight of 275m. But whether you're interested in racing or not, everyone flocks to the racecourse twice a year to enjoy the cosy, carnival style atmosphere, live performers and bands at the base of Hanging Rock.
