Carnarvon Race Club Land Support for 2023 Season

Published on Friday, 12 May 2023 at 12:08:20 PM

Following an announcement from REX Airlines that it would no longer provide additional services to Carnarvon ahead of the 2023 race season, the Carnarvon Race Club has been required to charter flights for jockeys and trainers. At the April meeting, Council approved the request to waive landing fees for the Race Club’s chartered flights with Skippers Aviation, supporting the local club in its 140th year.

With the 2023 race season kicking off tomorrow, the Shire of Carnarvon will waive airport fees and charges up to $6,500 related to chartering flights for the upcoming 2023 race season, which includes ten race events. The Shire recognises the significance of the Carnarvon Race Club to the town’s economic and social sustainability. The decision by the Shire’s Council to waive fees aligns with the objective of having an engaged, inclusive and supportive community, as outlined in the Shire’s Community Strategic Plan for 2022-2032.

With an exciting calendar of ten meets scheduled for the season, including the owner’s marquee event tomorrow Saturday 13 May, Ladies Day will be held on Saturday 27 May, Peter Evans Memorial on Sunday 3 September and the season finale Carnarvon Cup on Saturday 16 September.
