Sapphire Turf Club

Sapphire Turf Club

Sapphire Coast Turf Club is located on a picturesque 300 acre site on Sapphire Coast Drive at Kalaru, between Merimbula and Bega and Tathra. It is one of the newest and most modern country racecourses in NSW with great spectator facilities. Patrons can enjoy an unobstructed view of the racing action from most parts of the course including the Members Reserve and Function Centre and from the large, banked lawn areas.

TAB, kiosk and bar onsite, however you are welcome to bring your own picnic to enjoy on our lush lawns. Plenty of shade, free entry for under 18’s, entertainment and free buses to get you to and from the track all add up to a terrific day at the track.

Tathra Wharf to Waves Ocean Swim

Every year since 2002 hundreds of competitors jump into the crystal blue water from the historic Tathra Wharf and swim the 600 meter or 1200 meter course to the sand on Tathra Beach. This is the highlight our Wharf 2 Waves weekend. The 1200 Dash for Cash event with a $1000 cash prize gives competitors a real incentive!

While the ocean swim is the culmination of the weekend on the Sunday, a beach fun run and the Bega to Tathra Mountain Bike ride are also held on the Saturday. A weekend of fun and fitness in Tathra.
