Penola Racecourse Details & Map | Penola Racing Club

Penola Racecourse, Penola Racing Club. Description and details including a map of the racecourse.

Penola Racecourse is located at Riddoch Highway Penola SA 5277.

Penola is one of the oldest racing clubs in the south east of South Australia. The racecourse has a warmth and a charm about it like few others.

While race meetings in the mid 1800s were relatively informal affairs Penola Racecourse is attributed with holding the first official meeting. It was held over three days in February 1856.

Races were held in the streets around the town which formed the track. Current landmarks still standing today include the Royal Oak Hotel and the Presbyterian Manse being on two of the street corners.

The move to the current location was made in May 1906 when the club bought 96 acres for 411 pounds.

In 1979, Kalangadoo Racing Club, which was formed in May 1898, joined with Penola.

The main event at the Penola Race Club is the Penola Cup, which is usually run in the first week of April each year at the Penola Racecourse.
