Lockyer Valley Equine Precinct Business Case

Project Overview

A Collaborative comprising Lockyer Valley Turf Club, Racing Queensland, Equestrian Queensland, University of Queensland School of Veterinary Science, Lockyer Valley Regional Council, and Regional Development Australia (Ipswich and West Moreton) has been established to guide the redevelopment of the Lockyer Valley Turf Club.

In 2020 the Lockyer Valley Equine Precinct Collaborative developed a concept master plan which envisages the creation of a multi-use racing and equine precinct, with supporting hospitality, event spaces and accommodation, capable of hosting a variety of national and international world class equine events.

A business case is currently being prepared to ensure the proposed facility is financially viable and sustainable, assist with future funding applications and to inform the detailed design of the site. The concept master plan can be viewed in the Document Library on this site.

There are no funding commitments for this project at this stage.

The Collaborative is seeking feedback on the preliminary plan from the equine and racing industry, community groups and organisations and local residents and business owners.

You’re invited to:


  • Visit our pop-up listening post on Friday 23 April (1pm – 3pm) at the Lockyer Valley Turf Club (Friday Race Meet) and speak to the project team preparing the business case.
