About Kembla Grange Racecourse
Kembla Grange Racecourse is located along the Princes Highway, in the foothills of the Illawarra escarpment, 95km from Sydney and only 9km south of Wollongong.
The racetrack is one of the finest in New South Wales and a key attraction for fans of the great game looking for an adventure outside of mainstream Sydney.
Early archives show horse races have always been a part of the region’s history. Evidence has emerged in recent times of race meetings dating back to 1834 on the site of the present-day Wollongong Golf Course, 26 years before they raced at Royal Randwick.
It was not until early in the twentieth century that the current location of the Kembla Racecourse was purchased by the Hon. Joseph Carruthers, who designed a course almost identical in size and shape to Randwick.
The course is 2200m in circumference, 25m in width and has a straight length of 420m, suiting horses of all patterns.
It was not until the mid-1970’s that the Illawarra Turf Club was formed to manage the track. On the 18th of December 1976 the Illawarra Turf Club held their first official race meeting, and the rest has been history.
On average Kembla hosts 30 race days a year. Normally 26 of these are on Saturdays and the remaining 4 are held during the week.
With the impact of Covid in more recent times, Kembla has had the privilege of holding more Group races on weekends that will benefit the Turf Club immensely in these tough times.
