Country Racing Victoria



Spanning over a three year partnership with Country Racing Victoria, Ayus Botanical assisted with the beautification of a selection of CRV’s 52 regional racing clubs.

Creating a picnic ambience with parklands and shade trees, welcoming entrances and softening the stark racecourse vistas and buildings, were all critical in the transformation of these country racing venues.

Individual designs for each Racecourse were created to accommodate the unique configuration of each venue and the use of public areas both on race and non-race days.

Yarra Valley Racing Centre is one example set in the heart of the Yarra Valley with the backdrop of the eucalypt covered mountains and the rich tonal colours of the Yarra Valley vineyards.

A blue Wisteria walk softens the formal entrance and guides visitors to open parkland and corporate entertainment areas, where a cooling, green picnic atmosphere awaits.
