This is one of Australia's best known racecourses with large lawns and a very good glass fronted grandstand. In addition there are car parks, food outlets plus buildings with exhibition areas both on the ground and first floors. There's also a racing gallery. The racecourse is just over the road from Caulfield railway station; a 15 minute trip from central... More

Family day was well patronised. Food at the Black Caviar dining was excellent in taste, quality and presentation. Staff were professional and helpful. Venue a little tired but it's the same for most Racecourses across Australia.

This is a really good track with a big lawn area as well as modern grandstand with a glass front. Good viewing areas and plenty of places to eat, drink and have a punt.

We had a table booked in the members area directly opposite the winning post. Awesome view of the track with access to your own TV screen at your table making it easy to follow not only the races the but cricket aswell. We had a two year old with us which they provided a high chair with colouring in pencils.... More

Invited by a friend to The Melbourne Fair which had exhibitions of Antique, Art Deco 20th Century Vintage. Very well set out to wander around and enjoy all the displays. You were able to purchase articles from the vendors.

Change is in the offing here. Sections of the state government contend the people who administer the use of the public parkland on which the racecourse was constructed have allowed racing to take over too much of the surrounding land, alienating it from other uses. I doubt any government will downgrade the racing facilities as they bring in visitors and... More

Take some sunshine, add friends and family, a dash of horse racing with a hint children's entertainment. Mash it up with a smattering of gambling and baste in alcoholic beverages. Simmer. The family days at Caulfield are good fun, the kids get to play on bouncy castles and see the horses. As a tip, (someone told me to always back... More
