The Stalls at Moonee Valley Racecourse are situated in the historic spot where the racehorses gather on race days. On non-race days, this starting point will transform into an active place for the community to enjoy during the rest of the year.
The Arena will change the face of Moonee Valley Racecourse with a welcoming space for the community to gather and enjoy local festivals and family-friendly events throughout the year. By day, relax in the sun at a foodie fest and by night, be entertained under the stars.
The Racecourse Works master planning and delivery activity is well underway with the Masterplan for the Special Use zoned land approved by Moonee Valley City Council (MVCC) in October 2021. Early Works have now concluded on site, specifically the dam consolidation and earthwork activities.
The Development Agreement, which was entered into in 2017 with Australia’s leading superannuation fund Hostplus and renowned developer Hamton, is actively in its construction phase for Stage 1. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity over the next 15 years will deliver a new world-class racing facility that is supported by an urban designed residential, retail, commercial and lifestyle precinct. It is exciting to watch the progress being made to deliver the vision to transform the 98-acre Moonee Valley Racecourse site.
The redevelopment of racecourse assets will create a sustainable and contemporary precinct, including exciting new social and recreational facilities for the community, MVRC Members, and visitors to enjoy. With this approval now finalised, work has commenced on the detailed planning of the four key elements of the new Moonee Valley Racecourse precinct – the Racecourse, Infield, Grandstand and Clubhouse.
The SUZ Masterplan will guide the transformation of the Moonee Valley Racecourse precinct. The decision by MVCC to endorse the Masterplan last year was a key project milestone and follows a thorough planning process and extensive period of community consultation undertaken by MVCC and the Moonee Valley Racing Club (MVRC).
The redeveloped precinct will feature exemplary sustainability initiatives in accordance with the MVRC’s corporate strategy objectives. The Project team is currently progressing through the registration process for the Racecourse Works project under the EnviroDevelopment sustainable development tool. EnviroDevelopment independently reviews development projects and awards certification to those that achieve outstanding performance across four or more of the provided elements – Ecosystems, Waste, Energy, Materials, Water and Community. Design activities have commenced on water treatment and harvesting facilities, wetlands, and solar energy infrastructure.

Our new 5,000sqm civic park was delivered in November 2020. Tote Park is one of the cornerstones of the vision for Moonee Valley Park, a new neighbourhood set within a grand botanical garden. Tote Park offers 67 new mature trees, 315 shrubs and around 4,000 groundcover plants. Tote Park, designed by Tract Landscape Architects, features open grassy lawns with serpentine gardens, nature-inspired playground for families and stunning flower beds where visitors can relax in the sun or the shade, unwind and get active.
Positioned overlooking Tote Park in front of The Valley is TOTE Bar & Dining. The heritage-listed building was built in 1938 as one of the earliest surviving examples of a totaliser betting facility. The building has been protected and restored with a sympathetic yet striking renovation to become an exquisite bar and dining venue and is proving incredibly popular amongst locals, racegoers, and those seeking an exceptional dining experience.
The refurbishment and re-imagination of the historic Tote building was completed in July 2021, with TOTE Bar & Dining launching in August 2021.
From project inception, MVRC’s guiding principle has been to preserve and enhance the heritage character of the original Tote building, which has unique stature and significance in Australian racing history.
The revitalised structure complements and directly interfaces with the new Tote Park, creating a contemporary dining, recreation and community precinct at the main entrance to The Valley.
