Annual Events


There are a number of events which the Shire of Mount Magnet and the local community, work together to hold each year. Each event adds to the richness of community life and can also be enjoyed by visitors to town.

Mount Magnet Races

Mount Magnet Race Club hosts two meetings each year in Autumn and Spring, a full day of activities and entertainment. The Race Club runs a fully licensed bar on the day and two-up after the last race. The Mount Magnet Turf Club, located 2km north of town, was formed 118 years ago, in 1896, establishing the foundation for what would become one of the most tenacious racing clubs in the country. Here, along with the thrill of the race in rich red earth, you can experience the enduring outback spirit. For further information please email mountmagnetraceclub@hotmail.com.au


The Shire of Mount Magnet hosts an Australia Day Celebration each year. For further information please contact the Mount Magnet Shire Office on (08) 9963 3000.


On April 25th each year, Mount Magnet stops to remember those who have served this country in times of war, particularly those from this community who selflessly gave their lives. Please re-visit this page for the 2016 Schedule of Events or call the Shire Administration Office on (08) 9963 3000.

Mount Magnet Gymkhana

The Gymkhana is held at the Mount Magnet Race Course, located on the north side of town.
