Since 1865, the heritage-listed racecourse has seen the
finest thoroughbreds in Australasia. It has existed in Brisbane’s consciousness
for generations and welcomed thousands of spectators for over 150 years.
It is the people that gather here who make the Eagle Farm
Racecourse story so compelling. It has always been a meeting place, first for
the indigenous Turrbal clan, then as a base for the US army during World War
II. The site was then known as ‘Camp Ascot’ and filled with row after row of
tents. More recently, racegoers stream through the gates for the carnival
atmosphere while families visit to enjoy the Sunday markets.
This story is only just the beginning. The Ascot Green
residential precinct and Eagle Farm Village will provide a space for people to
gather for another 150 years. A winning combination of lifestyle, design and
tradition, Ascot Green will soon become a beautiful backdrop for races at Eagle
