Racing & Events


Te Rapa Racecourse is located to the north of the city on SH1, Te Rapa Road, Hamilton.

On race day access is easiest off Te Rapa Road into Sir Tristram Avenue, which is located on the LHS of Te Rapa Road travelling north. Entrance to Sir Tristram Avenue is sign posted between the National Bank building and Fairview Motors dealership, on the opposite side of the road from the Super Liquor Te Rapa outlet.

Away from race days, access is only available via Ken Browne Drive at the southern entrance. This is located from the roundabout off Garnett Avenue after turning left at the traffic lights on Te Rapa Road for motorists travelling north.
