Queensland Race Wagering

Racing in Queensland includes greyhound, harness and thoroughbred. The Office of Racing provides the regulatory policy and framework as prescribed under the Racing Act 2002, which repealed the Racing and Betting Act 1980.

Queensland was the first Australian state to adopt on-course and off-course horse race betting. The first track was established in 1879. Queensland legislators attempted to eliminate off-course betting with the Suppression of Gambling Act of 1895, and it was officially made illegal in 1923. Legal off-course betting returned to the state when the Queensland TAB was established in 1962. UNiTAB is the exclusive race wagering license holder in Queensland. Race clubs may apply to conduct a tote at a country racecourse at the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation, but they must apply to UniTAB first.

On 1 July 2010, the three racing codes of thoroughbred, harness, and greyhounds became one body under the Racing Queensland Limited (RQL). The RQL administers all codes of racing in the state.
