Christmas at The Tuncurry Forster Jockey Club: Race Days and Itineraries

Published on Apr 18, 2022
Every Christmas, the Tuncurry Forster Jockey Club hosts a Christmas Party Race Day. This fabulous event is unmissable for equestrian enthusiasts, with plenty of races and activities for the entire family. Over the past 15 years, President Garry McQuillian and dedicated brigade volunteers have banded together to make The Tuncurry Forster Jockey Club a force in NSW's economy. This growth is a remarkable feat after Racing NSW nearly deregistered the club in 2007. The Christmas Party Race Day features around seven races and draws in horses from all around the world. Whether you come to place bets on the track or enjoy the races with your family, you can make an entire vacation out of it. In this article, Forster Holiday Rentals, the only site dedicated to accommodation in Forster, shares everything you need to know to make a trip to the Tuncurry Forster Jockey Club a well-rounded vacation for everyone!
