In Detail

Ascot is Headquarters for racing in Western Australia.

Situated 8 kilometres east of the Perth City Centre with the head office of The Western Australian Turf Club positioned directly opposite.

She is the grand old lady of Australian racecourses.

Her committee buildings and Grandstand look as majestic now as they did at the turn of the century when they were built.

Race-goers during the summer months will enjoy the picturesque gardens and magnificent facilities including:

  • The Interstate and local Bookmakers Ring; an open sided pavilion running the length of the Main Tote 
  • Nine superb alfresco dining and bar facilities, specialising in fresh cuisine.
  • Two tiered restaurants: one on the public floor named The Terrace and one for members named Flying Colours. Both offer race-goers spectacular views of the track and fine cuisine.

Ascot's 2,000 metre track is also attractive, modern and well drained with a 300 metre inclining straight regarded by experts as the toughest test of stayers in Australia.
