Stony Creek Racing Club is the home of thoroughbred racing in beautiful South Gippsland.
Stony Creek Racing Club Inc. is managed by a committee of community members who bring strengths in business and racing knowledge, an enviable enthusiasm for thoroughbred racing particularly in South Gippsland and a vigorous arm to help with the many chores that must be completed on a regular and honorary basis.
The picturesque country racecourse, located on the South Gippsland Highway, is a wonderful place for a family day out. In accordance with its family-friendly ethos, Stony Creek Racing Club offers children free admission and entertainment.

|Stony Creek is located in Victoria's beautiful South Gippsland region, part of the greater Gippsland area which covers a vast and diverse landscape occupying Victoria's eastern corner, from unspoilt beaches to enormous lakes and mountain ranges.
Wilsons Promontory is part of South Gippsland, just three hours from Melbourne, known for its stunning bush and coastal scenery and acclaimed walking trails. The whole area is gourmet country, dotted with wineries, cheesemakers, farmers' markets, and fruit and berry farms. Dine al fresco at a lakeside restaurant or pub, have a family picnic by a river, or take a stroll through the waterfront villages of Walkerville or Venus Bay.
Elsewhere in Gippsland explore historic gold towns and maritime villages such as Walhalla and Port Albert, or take to the slopes and spend a day skiing at the Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort, the closest downhill ski area to Melbourne. The Gippsland Lakes are fed by the waters of five major rivers and fringed by Ninety Mile Beach. These provide ample opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating and sailing.
