Ipswich Racecourse



The roots of the Ipswich Racing Club and Ipswich Racecourse stretch back to 1848, but the track as we know it today was established in 1890. It was then known as the Bundamba Racecourse. It was renamed the Ipswich Racecourse in 1991 and is now a top thoroughbred racing course in Queensland.

The racecourse is located around 32 kilometres outside of Brisbane in the suburb of Bundamba. The course proper is 1746 metres with a 300 metre home straight and five chutes. There are approximately 46 race meetings held at this course every year, which includes two Saturday meetings. It is a home to the famous Ipswich Cup, which is run over 2150 metres in mid June. As the biggest event held at this racecourse, it draws a large and eclectic group of racing fans, punters and fashionistas.
