Our Horse Racing Tours have been running for over 30 years. Now retired race caller John Russell first escorted a group to the Darwin Cup in 1970. This then expanded to include Racing Tours to some of the most exciting events around the world including Royal Ascot, French Derby, Kentucky Derby, Hong Kong, South America and closer to home the Hobart and Launceston Cups. John still travels with these groups and shares is vast knowledge with many an enthusiast.
The Darwin Cup tour is always popular, running late July/early August each year, it is the perfect time to escape the southern winters and soak up the idyllic weather of the Northern Territory. The tour offers the perfect balance of racing, social events and leisure time. Darwin is alive at that time of year and Cup Day is a huge event. Our tour functions will include a fabulous racing themed dinner and we have seating and lunch in the VIP Marquee on Cup day, this will top off a fantastic weeks racing tour.
The annual Launceston Cup tour, is a short break in February each year. This is “country racing” at its best. The Tasmanian Turf Club put together a wonderful event each year culminating in Launceston Cup Day where our tour guests enjoy a great day of racing in the comfort of the Corporate Marquee, this includes some superb Tassie food & wine.
Booking early for these tours is always recommended.
