Kalgoorlie Racecourse

Kalgoorlie Racecourse

Kalgoorlie Racecourse is located at Cnr Meldrum Avenue & Speculation Road, Somerville, WA 6430.

The Kalgoorlie Racecourse is situated in the goldfield city of Kalgoorlie-Boulder about 593kms east of Perth in outback Western Australia.

The year 1896 may be remembered internationally as the year of the first modern Olympic Games in Athens, but in the Goldfields it is remembered as the year of the first official race meeting. In the early days of racing in the Goldfields of Western Australia, the action was conducted on a number of tracks scattered throughout the region.

Many of the towns that boasted circuits didn't survive the test of time. The only evidence suggesting that a thriving town once existed in most of those places is a neglected cemetery. It soon became apparent that the towns of Boulder, Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie (the 'Big 3') would become the leading tracks within the region.

The Kalgoorlie Racecourse is operated by the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Racing Club is arguably the best country-racing club in WA and is host to one of the iconic events on the national racing stage, the Kalgoorlie-Boulder "Race Round".

The Kalgoorlie Racecourse conducts 25 race meetings a year, two of which are Coolgardie Racing Club's meetings.

The Round is held in the second week in September and is the pinnacle of the race season.
