Come and support the local community and enjoy the up-close racing action that you’ll only get in the country. Whether you are looking for country casual or a catered experience, there are packages to suit everybody!

One of the truly unique aspects of the event is its location; there are no permanent grandstands at the racecourse. During the Dunkeld Cup, every aspect of the location, including seating and power sources, is created from scratch.

The event, which takes place during the Spring Racing Carnival, is breathtaking in many ways. This iconic racing event is one of the most well-loved in Australia and has even been awarded as the best race event of the year in 2008, 2009, and 2016.

Aside from grassroots racing, the Dunkeld Cup also features exciting entertainment and activity for visitors of all ages.

Before or after the races, visitors are encouraged to explore Country Victoria. Stay a few nights and check out the many attractions around there.

The Dunkeld Race Course is located at Lot 6 Dickie Street in Dunkeld, Victoria.
