The Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival takes place in May and June each year in Brisbane, Queensland, with quality feature racing action taking place at both Doomben and Eagle Farm racecourses.

With Eagle Farm out of action during the 2016 Winter Carnival their feature race days will take place at both Doomben and Gold Coast racecourses.

Group racing is held at the Gold Coast racecourse in Surfers Paradise in late April with the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes the highlight of a big day of racing on the coast.

Feature racing then heads to Brisbane for two outstanding feature race meetings where the Group 1 Doomben Cup and Group 1 Doomben 10,000 are the headline acts each day.

The Brisbane Turf Club's premier race of the Brisbane winter racing carnival is the $1,000,000 Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap, which is generally held at Eagle Farm racecourse in June, alongside the Group 2 Brisbane Cup. This season the Stradbroke meeting will be held at Doomben racecourse.

Both the Doomben 10,000 and Stradbroke Handicap attract quality sprinters from the southern states of Australia and the honour roll for both races has many a good horse's name etched upon it.

Three-year-old classics, the Group 1 Queensland Derby and Group 1 Queensland Oaks, are also good events on the racing calendar at carnival time in Brisbane. Trainers from the southern states with an above average 3yo may be enticed to head north in May in the hope of winning an Oaks or Derby.

Doomben and Eagle Farm also hosts listed stakes races over the summer period in December with the Group 3 George Moore Stakes most notable.
