COVID-19 Information


The priority of the Brisbane Racing Club is the safety of our community and teams.

In line with the Queensland Government's COVID-19 Guidelines, we have made a few changes to our operations which means your raceday experience may be different to the last time you visited.

Government Vaccination Mandate

It is acknowledged and agreed as a hospitality venue, the Brisbane Racing Club will implement the Queensland Government vaccination mandate effective from Friday 17 December 2021.

From that date, only double vaccinated patrons will be able to enter our venues.

Therefore, all Members and their guests, licensed racing personnel, industry partners and patrons will require a Government-issued COVID-19 vaccination certificate to be permitted entry to both Eagle Farm and Doomben Racecourse.

COVID-19 Tracing Requirements

It is a Queensland Government regulation that all patrons use the Check in QLD app when signing in to a Queensland hospitality premises. The Check In QLD app is available to be downloaded for free on both Google Play and the App store. There will be paper based registration available for guests who can’t download the app.

Ticket Refund Policy

If this event is cancelled due to COVID-19, all ticketed functions will be refunded and private spaces will be issued a credit.

Membership Refund Policy 

Brisbane Racing Club will not be able to refund membership fees if a member is not vaccinated per the Queensland Government vaccination mandate effective from Friday 17 December 2021.

Venue Capacities

Doomben and Eagle Farm Racecourses are accommodating patrons based on the Queensland Government’s 1 person per 4 square metres and 1 person per 2 square meter rules.

Each room will have a limited capacity and popular areas may fill quickly. If your preferred area is full there will be alternative bars and eateries for you to enjoy. 

We encourage all patrons to pre-book to avoid missing out on tickets on the day. Once the rooms and function spaces reach capacity, we will redirect patrons to alternative areas of the racecourse.
