The 2016 Queensland Oaks is a set weight 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 3 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 AJC Oaks in Sydney or the Crown Oaks in Melbourne attracting mainly locally-trained hopefuls.

The Queensland Oaks 2016 was due to take place on the 4th June but due to weather conditions the race has been postponed and will be run on Saturday 11 June.
