Racing, Sport and the Community since 1976 ...

               THE BERNBOROUGH CLUB INC

With more than 325 members, the Bernborough Club is a group of men who share an interest in thoroughbred racing, sport, fellowship and the community.

Since the club's formation in 1976, members and guests have enjoyed a variety of annual events and functions which feature outstanding guest speakers and entertainers to raise funds for charity (see separate list of guest speakers). Functions are held at quality venues such as Tattersall's Club, Queensland Cricketers' Club, Rydges Southbank and Royal on the Park.

A non-profit organisation, the Bernborough Club is proud of its annual contribution to charities which in recent years has averaged $50,000.The major event each year is the Stradbroke Luncheon, traditionally held on the eve of Queensland racing's premier sprint race. The luncheon is invariably a sellout with big-name guest speakers, entertainment and fine food and beverages. Other events include New Year's Luncheon (February), (March), BTC Cup Luncheon (May), Eagle Farm Race Day Marquee function (August), Spring Luncheon (October), Christmas Luncheon (late November-December).

Formed in 1976 when a group of 25 convened for a luncheon in the Member's Bar of the old Albion Park galloping venue, the Bernborough Club has prospered over the years. Numerous friendships have been formed with good fellowship a keynote of the club's social activities.

The founding president, the late Jim Anderson, named the club to perpetuate the deeds of the champion Queensland racehorse Bernborough. The club is committed to continuing that recognition.

A strength of the club is the diversity of membership...people from many different backgrounds domiciled in city and country. Members are entitled to invite guests to all events and functions. New members are always welcome and details are available on this website.
