Race meeting have been conducted at this present site since the late 19th century, which was first leased by the Tasmanian Racing Club in 1874, and later bought by them.

Elwick had already developed into a popular venue by the 1880s. Until the early 1980s there was a drive-in cinema located within the track. The declining popularity of this form of entertainment led to its removal,.

In 2004 A$20 million redevelopment was done on the venue. It involved the construction of a new 970 metre long, 19 metre wide harness track and a 700 metre long and 6 and a half metre wide track for greyhounds, as well as a redevelopment of the heritage listed grandstand and new bookmakers area.

Grass areas flow down to the mounting yard, enclosures and birdcage. 3 public lounges and 2 dining areas are present in addition to members' facilities.

The Hobart Cup meeting, a Group 3 event, is the biggest of the Tasmanian race days at Elwick Racecourse, which is also home to the Tasmanian Guineas and the Tasmanian Derby, a Group 3 event which is a set weight's race for three-year-olds.
