Port Augusta’s central location sees it as the heart of thoroughbred racing in the Spencer Gulf, and its facilities make it a premier site for racing. With the majestic Flinders Ranges as the backdrop to the Port Augusta racecourse, it has become famous for its breathtaking view. 

As the only sand-based country TAB track in South Australia, Port Augusta thoroughbred racing offers patrons a unique and exciting race day experience.

The Port Augusta Race Club is located only 5 minutes from the CBD and 30 minutes from the popular Flinders Ranges.

If you haven't been to the races for a while, now is the time to plan for this year's major social event, as the course has been transformed with new viewing areas perfect for catching up with friends. Be a part of racing at Port Augusta in 2024.

The Shed sponsored by the Pastoral Hotel will offer punters the ideal place for all the up-to-date racing information, a cold drink, and the best seat to watch live racing with all your favourites from the Track Cafe.

The club boasts exceptional on-course televised racing, bookmakers, tote, and racing hospitality at its finest, you won’t want to miss a great day trackside.
