There is no need to pre-book tickets to gain entry to the Gold Coast Turf Club; you can purchase your tickets at the entry gates when you arrive on the day.

However, on feature racedays you can take advantage of our ‘early bird’ offers and pre-purchase your tickets before the day.

Fashion and style are always an important part of any day at the races!

There is no particular dress code for our public areas (although dressing up is part of the fun!) with some exceptions for fancy dress and other items.

There are some dress codes for our Members, Function and Dining areas.
