Functions at Thoroughbred Park


Thoroughbred Park Function & Convention Centre is quickly developing an enviable reputation for conference and function facilities.

Offering the best of both worlds with the freedom and tranquility of the countryside, a beautiful view, unlimited free parking and situated only five minutes from the heart of the City.

The racecourse is a wonderful alternative offering a relaxed and peaceful setting with one of the best views in Canberra. At Thoroughbred Park Function & Convention Centre we know how to make you feel welcome, understand the needs of your ever-changing requirements and we are readily available to make your function a success.

The Function Centre offers an extensive variety of menus to suit every functions budget, however, our award winning caterers are more than happy to design a menu to suit your needs.

The club has conference and function facilities to suit everyone, from small conferences of 15 people to large corporate events of 2000. Our rooms are suitable from the smallest planning day to the largest wedding. Why not utilise our Fashions on the Field stage for your fashion parade, or the mounting yard for pre-dinner drinks!
