Invited by a friend to The Melbourne Fair which had exhibitions of Antique, Art Deco 20th Century Vintage. Very well set out to wander around and enjoy all the displays. You were able to purchase articles from the vendors.

Change is in the offing here. Sections of the state government contend the people who administer the use of the public parkland on which the racecourse was constructed have allowed racing to take over too much of the surrounding land, alienating it from other uses. I doubt any government will downgrade the racing facilities as they bring in visitors and... More

Take some sunshine, add friends and family, a dash of horse racing with a hint children's entertainment. Mash it up with a smattering of gambling and baste in alcoholic beverages. Simmer. The family days at Caulfield are good fun, the kids get to play on bouncy castles and see the horses. As a tip, (someone told me to always back... More

We went for the Off the track Triequithon and thoroughly enjoyed it. Well run, great atmosphere, took family along who don't normally do horsey stuff & they were pleasantly surprised, so much so they stayed till the end when they had planned only to stay for one event. Well done.

I attended this race course for a conference and just wanted to say the amenities and food were outstanding. The rooms used were airy and spacious and overlooked the track and all Staff were professional and very helpful. Transport is right outside the door back into Melbourne which for me who had come from Sydney was a plus. Unsure of... More

The Huge ground, good onsite parking and the location ( well served by Frankston line and Dandenong/Pakenham line of trains) is so good that the Caufield Racecourse has fast becoming a place for many occasions! The caravan show, career expo, Monash University uses it twice a year to hold exams, .. It has so much ground that one carpark has... More
