Entertaining trackside

Entertaining trackside is a perfect excuse to bring a group of friends, colleagues or sporting group together for an afternoon at the races.

Our race day packages offer an easy solution for businesses to engage clients or celebrate with staff and colleagues. They are also a great way for sporting clubs and community groups to fundraise.

We offer each booking the option of naming a race name* to be broadcast around the nation across the Sky Racing and Radio TAB networks.

The Ipswich Turf Club is situated in a central location only 30 minutes west of Brisbane and an hour east of Toowoomba. We offer complimentary on-site parking.
