Gore Racecourse has 53 hectares of freehold land providing racing facilities and also a training centre.
The Gore Racecourse, also known as Wyndham Racecourse is located 1.5 km south of Gore township on the Gore-Mataura Highway.
You can combine your trip to the races with some fishing. From October to April, Gore attracts anglers from all over the world hoping to catch the wily brown trout, famous in the waters of the nearby Mataura river.
Gore is also the Country Music Capital of New Zealand and hosts the "Gold Guitar Awards" during the week leading to Queens Birthday weekend each year and is attended by participants from throughout Australasia.
