Eastern Gascoyne Race Club – Visitor Information
Welcome to the 98th anniversary of the annual Landor race meeting to be held over the weekend of the 3rd October – 7th October 2019. We hope you enjoy a truly memorable and unique weekend at one of the last true bush race meetings in Australia. Our committee is proud of the Landor tradition and are dedicated to its’ survival. Here are a few bits and pieces of information for visitors new to Landor so that you can join in and have fun.
Please note: All campsites along the creek ( and immediately adjacent) are traditional established sites. Some of these sites have been occupied by the same station for 80 years or more. As a traditional bush meeting, the history and connection of the families that have been coming to the Landor Races create the unique atmosphere that we have.
If you do happen to setup in one of these traditional campsites you will be asked to move to another site. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
