The Brisbane suburb of Eagle Farm is synonymous with horse racing due to the nearby location of the Eagle Farm and Doomben racetracks. During the winter racing season Eagle Farm comes alive with colourfully attired race-goers and jockeys along with frisky race horses and their nervous trainers.
The Royal Brisbane Golf Course is nestled on the banks of the Brisbane River on the southern side of Eagle Farm. The course is known as one of Australia's finest and has hosted several Australian Open Championships and Australian PGA Championships.
Visitors to Eagle Farm will find good accommodation in the neighbouring suburbs of Hamilton and Ascot. Two of Brisbane's most prestigious suburbs, Hamilton and Ascot are known for their grand hilltop mansions, bustling restaurant precincts and charming leafy tree scapes. Accommodation options include quality hotels, motels, units, bungalows, bed-and-breakfasts and villas.
Eagle Farm is situated at the northern end of the Gateway Bridge, approximately 20 minutes drive from the Brisbane city centre and only five minutes drive from the Brisbane Airport.
