Family Days

There is nothing like a family day out at the races!

Matamata Racing Club is one of the most picturesque racecourse, a perfect place for packing up the kids and grandparents and heading to the track for a picnic on the lawn.

The races provide a unique social occasion for everyone to enjoy, from picking out a horse to have a flutter on to relaxing in the afternoon sun while endulging an ice-cream.
