Step Right Up!

On behalf of the Western Australian greyhound racing industry, I am extremely proud to showcase our wonderful state and sport to the many special visitors attending the GCA Crocmedia 2019 Nationals here in Perth.
And what a wonderful array of events the organising team led by Greyhound WA’s General Manager Noel Reilly has put together for our enjoyment.

Under the banner of The Greytest Show On Earth, the theme of the Nationals is bold and theatrical – a perfect backdrop for the carnivale atmosphere that will captivate our guests at the Nationals Gala Awards Dinner to be held in the Grand Ballroom of the PCEC. The evening will feature first class entertainment and will acknowledge of our sport’s past and present high achievers. Select names will be added to the ranks of Australian Greyhound of the Year and Leading Trainer titles, whilst Neil Brown will welcome more inductees into the coveted GCA Hall of Fame.

I cannot think of many more places better suited than Fraser’s Restaurant to provide a breathtaking panorama of the Perth city skyline. This iconic location at Kings Park will be the venue for our Welcome Dinner – a perfect way to relax after the inaugural National Symposium 2019 or a day cruising and enjoying a trip to the vineyards of the Swan Valley.

There are other important meetings and conferences taking place during the three days involving Greyhounds Australasia, Greyhound Clubs Australia, Greyhound Participants Australia and Greyhounds As Pets. These will no doubt continue to shape our sport’s future and I personally look forward to being a part of that journey.

Of course, the finale of the Nationals program is the 2019 Crocmedia National Sprint and Distance Championship finals at TABtouch Park Cannington on Saturday 24 August. Both time- honoured Group 1’s, this year’s events have the extra intrigue of the inclusion of New Zealand greyhounds.


To register your delegates for the Conference please go to the Registration page (from the above menu). All costs will be tallied and an invoice will be forwarded to your organisation. If you have any queries in relation to the registration process, please call our Marketing Officer, Kelly Frampton on 08 6350 4607 or email


I can’t wait to see everyone at this years’ Nationals!
