GASCOYNE JUNCTION RACES & GYMKHANA 

The Junction races is one of the oldest bush race meetings in Western Australia. Originally called " The Lyons and Minilya Amateur racing club" JRC was established in 1907. The first race meeting was held on the Box Gully Flats just out side of Gascoyne Junction township. Most race horses were from local stations and were walked for several days to the Junction to race. From  1908-1930 the races were not held every year as interest in the races waned due to the great depression and drought.

We hope you have a very memorable weekend at a truely unique bush race meeting. See you track side!
