Waverley Racecourse is home to the Waverley Racing Club
The Waverley Racecourse was upgraded in 2005 and a new running rail installed in April 2006.
The facilities are two grandstands - the Main Stand and the Members Stand which featured in the movie Good Bye Pork Pie.
Marquees are set up for the day for sponsors, corporate and the Punter of the Year.
The Waverley Racecourse is located off State Highway 3, two kilometres north of the Waverley township.

The Waverley Racing Club was established in 1874 and is a very strong and proactive club.
There are three race meetings per year – the March date is the feature day with the Waverley Cup for $50,000 in stake money. This is a major event and well supported by the Waverley community.
It has a carnival atmosphere with marquees, entertainment, live music and kid's entertainment - country racing at its best. Country Punter of the Year was run for the first time in 2006 and the Gold Challenge Cup is up for grabs as well as good prize money.
Other race days at the Waverley Racecourse are in July and September.
