HILLSTON RACECOURSE  
The Hillston Racecourse is in the state of New South Wales and can be found approximately 300 miles West of Sydney.
  Hillston witnessed its first meeting of note in 1854, although at that time the area was known as Red Bank. Those early meetings were organised by William Hill (not the famous English Bookie) and in his honour the area was renamed Hillston.

 

 
In those early days not only did Hillston Jockey Club hold meetings at the track, but so did Lachlan Picnic Club, although their final meeting was in 1972.
  Racing ceased during each of the two World Wars but quickly resumed afterwards.
