FAQs

 

How do I make a booking?

Phone the race club on 4153 1416 or e-mail bundabergraceclub@hotmail.com for for booking information. Bookings forms for each event can also be printed off the website. 

Do I have to pre-purchase tickets?

General admission tickets are available at the gate on race day. You can pre-purchase tickets for general admission from the office; however, seating is only guaranteed by purchasing marquee tickets or making a private area booking.

What food and drinks are available?

The Bundaberg Race Club operates bar and food service facilities for each race meeting. The Race Club Bar sells a variety of wine, champagne, beer, cider, spirits, and soft drinks--our liquor permit restricts the sale of beer and spirits to mid-strength only in the public bar.

A variety of hot and cold snacks, including sandwiches and meals, are available from the Urban Cafe inside the clubhouse. Private bookings can pre-purchase catering platters and an esky of drinks for their group. 

What happens if it rains?

In the event of wet weather, the race day still goes ahead as scheduled. If the track is too wet and becomes unsafe, the local races may be abandoned and we would run a 'phantom meeting'. This means the facilities are still open including the bar, bookmakers, and kitchen, and bets can still be taken on southern race meetings. No refunds will be issued for pre-purchased tickets or bookings; however, we will do our best to accommodate or move your guests to another area. Decisions on the safety of the track are made on the morning of race day, and are re-evaluated throughout the day.

Is there an ATM?

Yes, we have a Next Payments ATM inside the clubhouse opposite the kitchen. Cash is required to purchase tickets at the gate.

What facilities are available?

Each race day the club offers full tote and bookmaker facilities, public bar and bistro services, areas for private bookings for groups of 10 or 40, indoor seating inside the clubhouse, outdoor seating in the shade or adjacent to the track, a Fashions of the Field Competition, an ATM inside the clubhouse, and free parking.

Can I reserve a table in the clubhouse?

Only Bundaberg Race Club Members can reserve tables inside the clubhouse. To guarantee you and your guests seating, you will need to make a gazebo or marquee booking or purchase an annual membership. Members can, however, reserve tables inside the clubhouse for $20 pp ($40 pp on Melbourne Cup Day).

Can I bring my own food and drinks?

No food or drinks can be brought into the racecourse. Bags and eskies will be checked by security upon arrival. Special dietary requirements can be discussed with Urban Cafe & Catering two weeks prior to the event.

What parking is available?

Ample off-road parking is available onsite for free.

What is the dress code?

While there are no minimum requirements for the public area, neat and tidy dress standards apply. Fashions of the Field Competition entrants should adhere to the criteria for each category. Please e-mail the race club for categories and criteria relevant to each race day.
