Omeo is a key destination along the Great Alpine Road, connecting the Gippsland Lakes with Victoria’s High Country.

Woolamai Race Track


A grass track with a clay soil base, the track has a circumference of approximately 1,500 metres. After the winning post the track declines quickly to the 1100m mark and from there it climbs steadily to the finish.
Hospitality: There are two bars and two kiosks set up but the venue is BYO so many arrive at the track with a pre-prepared esky.

Picnic tables and bench seats are scattered throughout the public area but they are in hot demand so
arriving well before the first race jumps is advisable. There is no shortage of shade for patrons, with large old elm trees lining the public area adjacent to the home straight. Parking is available on the lawn near the home turn. Overflow vehicles may park in a nearby paddock.

The club hosts six non-TAB picnic meetings each summer with attendances ranging in size from 1,000 people up to 3,000 for Woolamai Cup Day held in early February each year. It’s very much a country racing feel with cattle roaming around just beyond the back straight.

The venue has been used to great success as a staging area for cycling events, running events, car rallies and live music.

The No.1 oval has four light towers that produce 150LUX. The No.2 oval has two light towers which produce enough light for training purposes. Night matches can be held at the netball complex thanks to eight light towers over the seven courts.

The change rooms and pavilions on the football/cricket grounds offer shade. There are shade structures at the ends of most of the netball courts.

Parking space in the south-west corner of the property, heading toward the start line, caters for more than 100 vehicles and trailers.
