Beautiful grounds surround the sand racetrack with all amenities provided from bar and food, air-conditioned Members Bar and oncourse TAB and Eftpos.

There’s plenty of green space for the kids to run around or spread out a picnic rug under the shady gums trackside.

Our Mission

The Roma Turf Club aims to conduct quality thoroughbred racing events in the Roma district, which will not only provide a high standard of sport, entertainment and benefits to the local community, but will improve and promote country racing to a broader audience.

Our History

In 1969, the local Roma region councils opened a brand new facility north of the town to accommodate racing in the district, previously held on a black soil track west of Roma.

The new, all weather sand track racecourse at Bassett Park was to become the home of the Roma Turf club – an amalgamation of the district’s existing racing groups, the Returned Soldiers Club, the Hibernian and Wallumbilla Race Clubs.

The Roma Turf Club is now regarded as one of Racing Queensland’s strategic clubs, NINE of the best and biggest country race meetings in Queensland including the Roma Cup in November – the largest and richest meeting west of the Divide.
