Ipswich Racecourse

Ipswich races are held at Bundamba Racecourse which is much better known as the Ipswich Turf Club. The QLD Provincial club holds around 50 meetings a year that are mostly split between the weekends and during the weekdays.

Ipswich attracts trainers from all over south-east Queensland, right up to the Sunshine Coast and beyond, but also attracts trainers from Australia-wide during their Ipswich Cup Day.

Ipswich races don’t have any Group 1 events but they host their annual Ipswich Cup meeting in June every year, just after the Brisbane Racing Carnival.
