Home of the $1 million The Gong, the race that brings the Sydney Spring and Everest Carnivals to an end, Kembla Grange is located at Wollongong about 120m south of Sydney.

Archives reveal that race meetings were staged by the original Illawarra Turf Club as long ago as 1834 on the site of the present day Wollongong Golf Course, 26 years before racing began at Royal Randwick.

However, early in the 20th century Kembla Grange estate, the present site of Kembla Grange Racecourse, was purchased by the Hon. Joseph Carruthers who designed a course almost identical in size and shape to Randwick.

Kembla Grange is also a fully licensed Function Centre – perfect for any type of Wedding, Party, Trade Show, Convention, Conference and much more.
