Ascot is a well established suburb in the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, characterised by large Queenslander homes. Ascot is located approximately 7 kilometres north-east of Brisbane’s Central Business District. Ascot is perhaps locally best known for its beautiful old homes, the picturesque poinciana tree lined shopping area of Racecourse Road, and for the Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses popular for racing carnivals. Over a third of the suburb is taken up by Doomben and its related outer buildings, Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses.

230 Lancaster Road: Eagle Farm Racecourse and Ascot Railway Station (as a joint listing of these connected sites)
