Queensland is home to a large amount of racecourses which are both country and metropolitan racing venues. Hosting major race events in both winter and summer, Queensland metropolitan racecourses are some of the best in the country.

Eagle Farm racecourse and Doomben racecourse are equally the greatest racetracks in the Sunshine State and feature some of the richest races in Australia. New to the racing world is the Sunshine Coast Turf Club which features a state of the art track surface new to Australia.

Apart from at Albion Park Racecourse, trotting and greyhound racing take place all across the state right up from Cairns to the southern towns of Toowoomba and Gold Coast hinterland.
