The 2017 Queensland Oaks is a set weights race held at Eagle Farm Racecourse for three-year-old fillies in early June each year. Raced during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival over a distance of 2400m, the Group 1 classic is worth $500,000 in prize money.

The Group 2 Doomben Roses (2020m) is held two weeks earlier and is regarded as the best lead-up race to the Queensland Oaks. The last horse to win the Doomben Roses / Queensland Oaks double was Scarlett Lady in 2011, before her it was Melbourne Cup winner Ethereal in 2001. Although the race is greatly admired in Queensland, its field is not as strong as the ATC Oaks in Sydney or the Crown Oaks in Melbourne attracting mainly locally-trained hopefuls.

The Queensland Oaks 2017 is set to run at Eagle Farm on Saturday June 3, 2017.
