The Wean Races have always been a favoured destination for tour bus operators, hotel bus groups and private social bus groups since its inception in 1933. Due to its isolation, if you want to have a good time and a few drinks, without the worry of driving home, coming by bus is the best option. The Wean Amateur Picnic Race Club offer gate discounts to people that come by bus, to encourage safer travelling for our patrons.
Putting on a bus tour to Wean is also a great way to reward patrons and create business for publicans and hoteliers. We contact every hotel within a two hour radius several months prior to the race meeting, and send them posters and travel brochures to assist with their publicity should they be trying to put on a tour. We also advertise them on this web page, so that anyone who is looking for a bus in their area can come here and get the necessary contact details.
If you are a publican, a hotelier, a social group, a commercial tour operator, or just someone putting on a private bus tour to Wean, please go to the forms link at the bottom of this page, fill out the form and submit it so that we can place you on this webpage. We get hundreds of calls every year from people all over NSW, and further afield, asking where they can catch a bus from. If those who are putting bus tours on are already on this page, we can simply direct them to this website, and they can contact you from there.
Please be sure to read the Terms and Conditions, and the Bus Conditions page.
