Summer Heroes Raceday

The Victoria Racing Club will pay homage to members of a number of Victoria's emergency services and volunteer organisations at Flemington this Saturday for what has been labelled Summer Heroes Raceday.

Recognising the incredible contribution volunteers and emergency workers make to our community, Summer Heroes Raceday will be a free admittance day for all attendees.

In addition to the Victoria State Emergency Service, a number of other local volunteer organisations will be participating on the day, with a dedicated area to display equipment and provide information on becoming a volunteer:

  • Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria
  • Life Saving Victoria
  • St John Ambulance Victoria
  • Royal Flying Doctor Service

Located at the east end of the Flemington public lawn, race goers can explore exhibits such as an SES truck and boat, CFA tanker, the Royal Flying Doctor Service flight simulator and much more. A road rescue demonstration by SES volunteers will also take place at 3:10 pm.

For further information, please visit or phone Flemington Customer Service on 1300 727 575.
