Ascot – Suburb Profile

Ascot is a residential suburb of Brisbane, six km north-east of the CBD. It includes the Eagle Farm and Doomben Racecourses, although the nearby Eagle Farm industrial precinct which lies south-east along the Brisbane River is a separate suburb. Ascot is regarded as one of Brisbane’s exclusive residential suburbs, its property values consistently ranking among the highest in the state.

EAGLE FARM

The earliest European settlement in the area was a farm for the Brisbane penal settlement in 1829, although the earliest record of the name ‘Eagle Farm’ is apparently on a survey plan dated 1840. The convict farm had also been a place where female convicts were assigned.

Land sales at Eagle Farm occurred in 1842. In 1863 the Queensland Turf Club acquired land at Eagle Farm for a racecourse and in 1864 a local school was opened, now the Hendra primary school. A Wesleyan church opened in 1869.

Eagle Farm was well out of town until the 1890s: a sugar mill opened there in 1874 and a powder magazine remained in the area until 1893 when it was moved to Fort Lytton.

ASCOT RACECOURSE

The name ‘Ascot’ arose from Eagle Farm racecourse’s association with the famed English track; probably the name was given light heartedly, as the venue was largely unimproved. It was nevertheless popular and prompted construction of a railway line from Eagle Junction in 1882 (the station was at first known as Hendra Siding and then Racecourse).

Not content with only a railway, race patrons secured a tram service in 1899 from Breakfast Creek Bridge to Eagle Farm, the line running along Kingsford Smith Drive (formerly Hamilton Road) and northwards along Racecourse Road to the track entrance. The tram service fostered residential development in Hamilton and Ascot, the district having been constituted as the Hamilton local-government division in 1890. A shopping strip grew along Racecourse Road, which by the 1920s had a retail catchment along tramlines in Lancaster Road to Oriel Park and Doomben.

INTERWAR URBAN GROWTH

Most of Ascot’s housing stock is of the interwar period. A service reservoir at Bartleys Hill at the western edge of Ascot was built in 1907 in readiness for urban growth, and a second reservoir was constructed in 1920. Local schools were at Eagle Junction and Hendra, but continued population growth led to the opening of Ascot State school in 1920 with 52 pupils; a swimming pool was added in 1923.
