Eagle Farm Racecourse



Behind The Scenes Tour


Give a gift that gets the heart racing! Brisbane Racing Club's Behind the Scenes Tours are the perfect gift for any racing aficionado or newcomer to the sport.

The Behind The Scenes Tour begins by meeting a leading jockey and trainer and learning how they prepare for a raceday. You will then head out across the track (where you’ll have the opportunity to get a photo in front of the winning post) and witness how the horses are loaded into the barrier stalls and hear the boom of the barriers as they fly open for the start of the race!

Enjoy a complimentary drink and a bite to eat in the Owners & Trainers Bar before heading to the race caller’s tower, where esteemed race caller David Fowler will commentate the race live.

At the conclusion of the Behind The Scene Tour, you’ll be welcomed to the exclusive Members’ Reserve to enjoy the rest of the day.
