I have experienced Royal Randwick from almost every angle, corporate function, Members reserve and general public entry. Go in with the right mindset and you'll have a great afternoon, if you also manage to make a few dollars, it's an added bonus!

Had a fab day out at International race day on boxing day. Free entry to those with international passports. Lots of space and plenty of chairs. Drinks reasonable prices. Great views from the balcony!

We recently scored an invitations to the members area at Rotal Randwick on Moet and Chandon day. How special. The chairman's lounge was amazing. We received a Vintage Moet from 2006 which was really special. My wife had all the luck punting that day but the view from the grandstand across the track is outstanding. It was quite a windy...

Whilst it was windy as it was cold a few champers,... More

A really good day out and an opportunity to dress up for the races. Great atmosphere and the only thing spoiling the day was the weather over which there is no control.

Sunny day at Randwick. Since my previous review, everything is now up and running. I couldn't believe that the Octagonal Bar staff were late opening, given that the Epsom Handicap meeting is one of the biggest days at the track. Gates opened at 11am.

The new Members stand is creating great enjoyment and entertainment, the facility is outstanding and you don't need to leave. They do a nice job after with entertainment for a few hours to wined down the day. Nice touch was they brought around meat pies complimentary for everyone. Can't wait to return, thanks
