Jennifer says a new innovation for the day will be the Surf to Turf Summer Party which is a must-do on the summer events calendar. “The party is in our pavilion with a prime view of the home straight from a private lawn area. Winning horses look as though they are thundering towards the area,” she says. Your $30 entry ticket gets you into the area, finger food, a race book and cash bar and totalisator facilities in a comfortable, relaxed area. Jennifer says it is the destination for people looking for a memorable day out. “You arrive in your tidy summer gear, sunnies and jandals if that is what you’re comfortable in, and we provide the music and entertainment while you provide the fun and laughter,” she says. Over the rest of the year there are race meetings in March, April, May, July September, November and December. On what many consider the best steeplechase track in New Zealand with its twin hills incorporated in the steeplechase course, winter racing in Paeroa is exciting and great place to see some jumps action. The course, with its 1825m right handed track and 400m home straight against the stunning backdrop of the Coromandel Ranges, is a great day out for the whole family. Throughout the year the function centre is very popular with six function rooms available as well as the outside grounds to hold special occasions like weddings, anniversaries and birthdays. It’s also great for corporate meetings with loads of parking in a centrally located venue. ONE OF THE BEST: Paeroa Racecourse is considered to be one of the best country venues in New Zealand.
