Goulburn Harness Racing Club Inc operates the Goulburn Paceway and is presided over by a family oriented committee and membership. The historic club is situated at the Goulburn Recreation Area, 47 Braidwood Road, Goulburn. Located just a few minutes from the Goulburn city centre, the racetrack is conveniently located for fans and racing participants alike.
The complex features an outstanding 1050 metre racing circuit which incorporates the very latest science in track design. It provides superb spectator facilities in the Grace Millsom Function Centre and caters to all the needs which punters, fans and participants may have. The Goulburn Paceway is also the resting place of the immortal pacer Walla Walla who inspired a nation during the 1930’s depression era. A memorial commemorating the champion Standardbred marks his burial site at the top of the home straight.
The Goulburn Paceway is also the training base of the Day and Hewitt families who among them have won NSW trainers’ championships, and numerous classic and feature races.
Racing 10 times a year, the club’s racing calendar usually spans the months of December to June inclusive. The club’s feature race meetings are the Hewitt Memorial Crookwell Race day in mid January, and the Carnival of Cups fixture held on the Australia Day weekend each year. A progressive club, we offer the very best in country harness racing and strive to make a day out at the trots the best it can be!
