Whatever your reason for visiting Perth Racecourse we want to ensure you arrive safely, on time and ready to go! Whilst you’re here it is important to us that you are comfortable and have everything you need to enjoy your visit.
So from parking the car to finding the loos, having a flutter to booking a cab, our information section is here to help you make the most of your day at Perth Racecourse.
It is often the little things that are most needed when you visit a new venue!
Access and Assistance
We pride ourselves on all of our guests experiencing the same great day out or event. We have endeavoured where possible to provide access for wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
All of our restaurants have full wheelchair access, and lifts where necessary, and we have a number of raised wheelchair platforms around the track and Parade Ring for easy viewing.
Guide Dogs are always welcome and we are happy to provide a bowl of water for your hard working companion throughout the day in the summer months.
Upon request we can produce our brochures in large print PDFs.
Please do not hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any additional needs that we can assist with.
We have two enclosures at Perth Racecourse, the Grandstand and the Centre Course. The Centre Course is only open on weekend fixtures.
If you are a concession ticket holder (over 60, student or a disabled racegoer) please ensure you buy a Grandstand Concession ticket for Grandstand access.
If you qualify for a concession ticket and wish to go to the Centre Course please purchase a Centre Course ticket.
The concession and Centre Course tickets are of the same value. Please be aware that no Grandstand Concession ticket holders will be permitted into the Centre Course.
Track Cross Policy
Centre Course patrons are not permitted to cross the track in to the Grandstand enclosure. Similarly, Grandstand tickets do not permit access to the Centre Course.
This policy is in place to help protect track conditions and ensure the safety and enjoyment of racegoers. The steady rise in crowd numbers in recent years has in turn increased the risk of damage to the track with much higher volumes of racegoers crossing between races year on year. Therefore, this policy helps us maintain a safe level of track condition for both horse and jockey. Further, we are bound by our Sports Ground Safety Certificate and so this policy, along with e-ticketing data capture, allows us to more accurately monitor our actual crowd numbers in line with venue capacities.
There are a number of toilets dotted around the race course.
- The Betting Hall
- The Long Bar
- Between the entrance and the betting kiosk
- In the Grandstand Enclosure opposite Cafe Bindaree
- In the Centre Course Enclosure
There is a cash point machine in The Betting Hall.
