Relax from your labours at Balnarring races

With its gorgeous setting, laid-back atmosphere and attractions for all ages, there’s more to the Balnarring Picnic Racing Club than just great races.

For a wonderful day out the whole family can enjoy, head to Emu Plains Reserve for the club’s next meeting on Sunday, March 11, during the Labour Day long weekend. You can bring a picnic and BYO alcohol or buy from a range of food vendors and the bar at reasonable prices. The playground and amusements ensure the kids are well catered for so the adults can relax and enjoy all the on-course excitement.


The track is in superb condition and kept to a high standard by the dedicated committee members, earning praise from trainers and jockeys for its safe surface that benefits the horses.

The club’s partnership with Peninsula Party Hire has ensured a smooth booking procedure for sites and marquees, while sponsorships on all races for the past two meetings have sold out. Crownbet is once again sponsoring one race at each meeting, and every year people sponsor races for birthdays or memorials for family members as a personal tribute. 

For information about sponsorships, membership, meeting dates and more, go to, and follow the club on Facebook and Twitter. And don’t forget that on Saturday, March 31, the club will hold its Easter meeting with Fashions on the Field, live music and an Easter egg hunt.
