This is a great day out even if you're not a fan of horse racing/gambling. We had a fab day with a few drinks enjoying the sunshine.

16 of us went to Eagle farm for the Saturday Races as part of a golf trip to Brisbane in July. For $85 each we got tickets to the member's area, a reserved table and tapas style food. Admittedly, it is hard not to have fun when you are with a group of friends on a sunny day in Brisbane,... More

Any racetrack when the weather is good is a fun day out.We had a good day at Eagle Farm Racecourse although we didn't back any winners.The reason I say it is a average day out is because all racetracks are pretty much the same.

Third year in a row going to this event and its gone from Great to OK to poor. Choice in beers was poor, food was average and far too heavily policed by the boys in blue who walked around in groups of four as if a riot was about to start. Atmosphere was very dull until the racing finished and... More

Yes watched a couple of races and love the atmosphere on the Big Days . However the weekend markets are the place for the freshest veggies and the coffee and cakes are to die for ..

It is not a place that attracts people in itself. They go out of there way to entertain you, entice you back. I love horse racing, so I enjoyed the bookies, and the nearby tote, and seeing the racing. That could be a lot better, giving the punter a better view. It had drinking areas, I think they had a...

Unless you just want somewhere to mingle with the crowd there is little else to do exce3pt watch people losing their money. The younger crowd however, particularly the young ladies seem to have perfected the art of "strutting" to or from the bar or the "ladies" between and during the races such that most men have little interest in the...

Great place to hit if you missed the West End markets on Saturday. Fresh produce is excellent and it has an expanded "craft" area (that I avoid like the plague) but it always seems busy. Big plus for the German Sausage tent, small goods, live music and quality of veges. Oh yeah, lets not forget cheap organic eggs, fresh herbs,... More

We went there for my husbands birthday 23 March 2013 as Reserve Members. Disgraceful, woeful, dirty and a place I would never go again. Drinks overpriced, ordered a platter of wontons and when arrived only consisted of shell with no meat content, toilets were are disgrace with no cleaner replenishing toilet paper or cleaning surrounds, betting facilities disgraceful, dirty surrounds....
