Albion Park Raceway

Albion Park Raceway is a two-turn loam track located just 5 minutes from the Brisbane Central Business District. It is close to both the domestic and international airports and is situated behind the Breakfast Creek Hotel.

Albion Park Raceway's totalisator facilities are available at all greyhound race meetings. Monday, Thursday and Friday meetings are also televised on Queensland's Sky Channel.

Aside from greyhound racing, Albion Park Raceway also plays host to harness racing.

History of Albion Park Raceway

For over a hundred years, Albion Park Raceway has been used for horse racing. However, the last horse meeting was held on December 30, 1981.

The following year, Albion Park was purchased by Racing Development Corporation (RDC) from the Brisbane Amateur Turf Club (BATC) for $9 million to facilitate Albion Park's redevelopment as a harness racing venue.

Trustees of Albion Park Raceway are appointed under the Racing Venues Development Act 1982. The Trust is a statutory body within the meaning given in the Financial Administration and Audit Act 1977.

The Trust acts as landlord of the Albion Park Raceway, maintaining and operating the complex primarily for harness racing by the Albion Park Harness Racing Club on Saturday nights, and greyhound racing by the Brisbane Greyhound Racing Club on Monday and Thursday nights.

On proclamation of the Racing Legislation Amendment Act 1998 on 1 July 1999, the State of Queensland assumed ownership of Albion Park.

In June 2002, Cabinet resolved that the Albion Park Raceway asset was to be transferred from ownership by the State of Queensland, to the Greyhound Racing Authority and Queensland Harness Racing Board as tenants in common in equal shares.
