Ruakaka Racecourse

Ruakaka Racecourse is home to Whangarei Racing Club.

The Racecourse boasts expansive ocean views and hosts eight meetings per season.

The racing surface of Ruakaka Racecourse has a well-earned reputation as New Zealand's finest 'all weather' track.

The reliability of the racing surface makes Ruakaka popular with trainers outside the area who base themselves here during the winter months.

Access to the beautiful beach to train on makes the Racecourse unique, hence its logo: "Where the turf meets the surf!"
