“Race day at Eagle Farm”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

At a recent company sponsor race day we had the pleasure of a great day out at Eagle Farm.
The Laboratory bar has a nice private airconditioned area inside with a private balcony off to the side to watch the race action live.
The races are always fun but to enjoy them in suchh a comfortable setting with great service and attentive staff is even better.
Easy access to Eagle Farm from public transport and just a really good day out all round.

“Race Day”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

This is one for the girls. We found a great spot at Eagle Farm to watch all the action fly past. We weren't bothered by anyone and had easy access to the bars and bathrooms with very small queues. Post-race entertainment started quickly and was possibly the best part of the day, staff were even handing out bottles of water as people left which was a very thoughtful pick me up! I'd definitely go back, but would consider a broad hat as the shade was fairy scarce.

“A fantastic day out”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Everytime I have attended Eagle Farm Racecourse I have had a great day. It is a good place to go with family or work groups. It doesn't matter if you don't know anything about horses, I didn't. I enjoyed going and watching the horses prepare for the race, picking the 'winner' and then placing a little bet. There are cafes and restaurants available for snacks or meals and plenty of transport around the venue.
