Off to the Races
As the leading metropolitan race club in Queensland, the Brisbane Racing Club conducts ninety-eight race meetings and hosts over 300,000 patrons each year. Race meetings are conducted at the club’s two racetracks, Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses. Highlights on the racing calendar include the Spring (October), Summer (December) and Winter (May, June) carnivals. These racing events feature black type races attracting wide interest from the public, media and industry.
The Brisbane Racing Carnival (held in May/June) in particular showcases the cream of racing champions from Australia and New Zealand. This carnival has become an iconic event on the social calendar for Brisbane and includes the BTC Cup, Doomben Cup, the Doomben 10,000, Queensland Oaks, Queensland Derby, JJ Atkins and the grand final event, AAMI Stradbroke Day. The Brisbane Racing Club also hosts many other feature racing events including Exhibition Wednesday and Melbourne Cup Day.
Racecourse Road Annual Community Christmas
It has become a tradition for the Racecourse Road Community to come together for an annual Christmas Festival. Calling on the talents from our local schools, entertainers and roving street performers, the festival comes to life as you wander through the St. Augustine’s Church grounds perusing the handicrafts of the festive twilight market stalls. Boutiques extend there opening hours for your late night Christmas shopping and there is something for all ages; from face painting and Christmas goodies to mulled wine. Grab a candle, join in the carols and make this a tradition for you and yours.
