Yea Racing Club


The Yea Racing Club is located in the beautiful town of Yea, 90 minutes north-east of Melbourne. The town and area is surrounded by rolling hills and farmland and is a gateway to the snow fields of Mt Buller and Mt Stirling beyond Mansfield.

Records exist showing that the races were held at Yea before 1900. With a long history of racing, the Club is located on the western edge of the Town and is surrounded by rolling hills and old gum trees. It is co-located with the Yea Golf Club and is well appointed with extensive parking and general public facilities.

Access is easy via the Melba Highway from Yarra Glen, the Goulburn Valley Highway from Seymour or the Yea-Whittlesea Road from Melbourne's northern suburbs.

It is a great atmosphere for families and keen punters alike, and offers a great day to shed the worries of life, relax and enjoy the fabulous surroundings and excitement of a thrilling race day.
