About

The Colac Turf Club has had a long and proud tradition of turf racing, education and training of horses that spans more than 145 years.

Nestled at the foot of the Otway Ranges, the Colac Turf Club is one of the renowned country racecourses in the Great ocean Road region.

The Colac Gold Cup has become a much sought after trophy among top trainers within Victoria for many years and the record books show why. The past five Country Racehorses of the year have either won the Colac Gold Cup or been trained at Colac.

The club’s three big race days in December, February and March draw many visitors to the region to enjoy grassroots community racing in a relaxed rural setting. While in the area, many visitors also take time out to enjoy the breathtaking coastline of the Great Ocean Road between Lorne and Apollo Bay. Colac is the major inland town servicing the tourist region.
