Located at Riverside, Tamworth Road, Gunnedah, NSW, the Gunnedah Racecourse is managed by the Gunnedah Jockey Club. Around 15 race meetings take place at the Gunnedah Racecourse every year.
The Gunnedah Racecourse was established in the late 1830's but was closed during World War I. However, the Club was re-established in 1946 and shifted to Riverside following World War II.
The racecourse's other facilities include an undercover betting ring, TV entertainment (with access to the Sky channel), training equipment and facilities and a dinning room.
Gunnedah lies in the heart of the Namoi Valley and also goes by the name 'Koala Capital of the World' because of the heavy presence of Koalas in the capital.
The capital is about 440 km from Sydney (by road) and covers an area of 4,994 square kilometres. The town of Gunnedah supports well over 12, 000 inhabitants and provides its residents with a perfect combination of relaxed and quality living within favourable economic conditions.
The Gunnedah Racecourse has a circumference of 1800 metres. The track's final straight is 400 metres long. The square shaped track has a sharp final turn and inside barriers that are a practical advantage. The track favours front running.
