For old-world charm in the heart of Brisbane, you can’t go past Brisbane Racing Club at the Eagle Farm Racecourse. This venue provides a host of different locations, with something different for everyone.
The Brisbane Racing Club has three ceremony venues to choose from, each with its own significant style. Set among lush gardens, the St Leger Fig Tree is the perfect option for those looking for an outdoor ceremony under the shade of a gorgeous leafy tree. For something a little more manicured, you can choose Stradbroke Plaza, a sophisticated and spacious outdoor venue for a larger ceremony guestlist. The third venue, Parade Ring, offers a chic water fountain and grassy surroundings for those who are looking for the full racecourse wedding aesthetic.
The Brisbane Racing Club also sports three options for your wedding reception—The Tote Room, The Ascot Bar, and The Society Rooftop. The Tote Room is the largest of the venues, with the kind of charm that was born in the early 1900s. This banquet hall is one of a kind with its high ceilings and far-reaching tables.
For something a little more understated, The Ascot Bar is an intimate space with views onto the racecourse. The room’s warm atmosphere and charm of the past are characteristic of the Brisbane Racing Club, and will make your guests feel at home.
Lastly, the recently renovated Society Rooftop is a glamourous and sophisticated venue for a cocktail-style wedding. The wooden floorboard interior adds a modern twist to the otherwise-classic original grandstand, while the pergola gives this venue an intimate and charming character. Fitted out with atmospheric lighting and plenty of space for dancing, this secret reception venue is one to put on your list.
All ceremony and reception venues are within easy reach of each other, making for smooth transitions on your special day. If you’re after a venue full of old-world charm and modern sophistication, the Brisbane Racing Club has what you’re looking for.
