The first Racecourse proper was laid out in 1862 at West Rockhampton near the present “Connor Park” aerodrome.
The first properly constituted racing body was the Fitzroy Jockey Club formed in 1863. It was succeeded by the North Queensland Jockey Club. Neither had a very long life and Racing lapsed from 1866 until the Rockhampton Jockey Club was formed in 1868.

The Club conducted its first meeting on the 25th July that year. Racing continued there till 1898 when the Club moved to the present course.

This new facility was referred to as the North Rockhampton Course and at a Committee Meeting of the Club held on Thursday 7th March 1912 a recommendation was made to the Trustees of the racecourse reserve to the effect that the Course should be named “Callaghan Park” after the oldest member of the Club, Dr William Callaghan.
