Albany Racecourse Details & Map | Albany Racing Club

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

Albany Racecourse is located at 261 Roberts Rd Albany WA 6330.

Albany Racecourse is found 422kms south east of Perth on Western Australia's southern coast. With views of the Albany Wind Farm and Mt Melville in the distance, surrounded by natural bush, the best place to be is trackside and enjoy the fashion and friendly atmosphere.

A great number of notable events have taken place since the City of Albany was first settled in 1826. Among those events was the launching of the Albany Racing Club in 1865 which operates the Albany Racecourse.

Records held by the Club indicate that the first Committee Meeting was conducted at the Albany Mechanical Institute on 23rd March 1865.

Worthy of note is a Cash Book Entry dated 23rd of March 1865 which states

"Refreshments for Stewards at Racecourse - Three pounds, fourteen shillings and threepence."

Stewards were obviously well catered for even in 1865!
