Broome Race Round 2018

The Broome Turf Club is carved out of bushland at picturesque Gantheaume Point, just a stone's throw from world famous Cable Beach.

This idyllic location perched on the Broome peninsula is surrounded by the Indian Ocean and benefits from the constant cool breezes which are a welcome relief in the hot and humid climate of the Kimberley.

Today the Broome Turf Club has transformed from its rustic ‘pindan’ roots into a relaxing, shady oasis.

A day at the Broome races is an experience unlike most others, and one that many international tourists seek to repeat.

A highlight of the tourism calendar in Broome, it is a place where members of the multicultural community mingle with visitors from far and wide.

The main attraction is competitive racing on the firm dirt track, which is well complemented by the highly social and community aspects of race days.

A joyful and colourful scene, the club's hospitality is enhanced by local and imported entertainment throughout the day and evening.

Set amongst the balmy tropical climate the post race party extends well into the evening with patrons reluctant to go home.

A good time is had by all who try their hand at tossing the coins in the uniquely Australian game of two-up, or for those who choose to dance the night away to the sound of great live entertainment.

The nine-week race season culminates in the highly anticipated Broome Cup Carnival.

Incorporating a vibrant Ladies Day on Tuesday 14 August and Saturday 18 – always a sensational Broome Cup Day – leaves punters yearning for the next year's season.

Everyone who has ever had the pleasure of experiencing the Broome races always returns, for this is truly ‘the winter racing alternative’.
