Upcoming Events

Of course, all events at The Melbourne Greyhounds held at 'The Meadows' revolve around great greyhound racing. However, what's offered at each meeting can vary immensely.

Families, kids, GAP, communities, greyhound racing lovers –  everyone’s catered for at the Melbourne Greyhounds.

We’d be telling a furphy if we said the main entertainment at our world-class Meadows venue weren’t the greyhounds themselves. They alone, are spectactular and thrilling – a must see! However, our MGRA team are always looking to enhance and add greater value to those attending our race meetings.

Below is the list of upcoming events and what we like to call feature racing meetings. Each offer something different. Be sure to check out their dedicated pages for more information about what’s happening at these events.
