Restrictions on gatherings for non-essential services to limit the spread of COVID-19 means that Flemington Racecourse tours have been paused, and the Flemington Heritage Centre is closed until further notice.


Flemington Racecourse is an iconic, world-class racecourse that’s steeped in history and legend. We run a number of different tours to introduce groups to its unique stories, legends and history.

We offer two different tours:

  • Standard Tour: view the Flemington Heritage Centre 'racecourse of dreams' exhibition and take a guided walking tour of the grounds.
  • Social Groups: enjoy a tour around Flemington followed by a relaxing lunch at the Headquarters Tavern.

Please note that both tours require a minimum 10 persons.


  • Groups (over 10 people) & Concession: $15
  • Children (14 years and under): $10


Enjoy a lunchtime meal at Headquarters Tavern

Open 7 days a week, 9am-late, Headquarters Tavern has great food and beverage options for everyone. Social Group tours will stop here for a hearty lunchtime meal.
