Directions to Carrathool

For those driving to Carrathool – see Google map for directions.


For those who would like to fly to Carrathool, there is a well marked airstrip at the racecourse. It is 800m long smooth dirt strip with fence at each end so there is no overrun. Landing will not be available while a horse race is in progress. If there is a vehicle parked on the strip it means there is a race in progress. Once the vehicle is removed you will be free to land. Parking at South West end of airstrip.

Strip runs 06/24
