Wine Country Race Club

Purchased by Newcastle Jockey Club in 1981 Wine Country Race Club has enjoyed a long and proud history. 

Located just minutes from Cessnock City Centre and the vineyards of the Hunter Valley, Cessnock Racecourse boasts that country charm expected of a country racecourse and comes alive with people, racing and celebrations around 12 times a year.

Cessnock Racecourse has a number of outstanding feature days including ANZAC Day, Jungle Juice Cup and the Tooheys New Cessnock Cup. 

Wine Country Race Club encourages patrons to bring a picnic style lunch or you can find snacks and beverages at the cafe and bar on the day.  Many groups bring picnic style foods and claim a section of the huge lawn for their group to enjoy the day.

Wine Country Race Club is located at Cessnock Racecourse, Racecourse Road, Cessnock, NSW 2325.
