What better way to relax and enjoy your day at the Goondiwindi Picnic Races than to bring along a picnic lunch or platter of nibbles? Not really your style…that’s okay, because we’ve got you covered with a wood-fired pizza stall near the front gate and steak burgers, sausages on bread and hot chips near the main bar.
Full bar facilities including champagne, wine, beer, spirits, soft drinks and water – NO BYO DRINKS permitted on course.
GETTING TO AND FROM THE TRACK
Goondiwindi is situated at the junction of six major highways on the western edge of the Darling Downs.
Greyhound and Crisps Coaches operate daily bus services to Goondiwindi.
Qantas services Moree Airport which is a 90 minute drive south of Goondiwindi.
Free Shuttle Buses
