Located at Nixon Terrace in Gawler, the Gawler Greyhound Racing Club has been popular with local community residents and racing enthusiasts alike since it was founded in 1971.
The Club recently undertook an impressive redevelopment of the facilities which were opened in February 2015. The venue now boasts a modern restaurant and function centre called Nixon’s which is open for dining during race meetings. Nixon’s is known for providing racegoers with a fantastic vantage point in which to watch the racing unfold, whilst enjoying the comfortable air-conditioned surrounds and an impressive dining menu.
Outside of racing, the venue is a popular choice for many different types of functions include from business meetings to weddings and birthday celebrations.
Racing is conducted at the venue twice weekly, with meetings held every Tuesday and Friday during the day, with races across 3 different distances – 400m, 531m and 643m.
There are 4 main feature races held at Gawler with the Group 3 Gawler Gold Cup being the most prestigious and attracting top SA and interstate greyhounds. With a great atmosphere, the Gold Cup night provides entertainment for the whole family to enjoy, with live music and the kid’s amusements always a hit.
