The Carrick Hack and Trotting Club was formed in 1912 when the Carrick Racing Club folded. Both forms of racing were conducted for a number of years before becoming the Carrick Trotting Club. Carrick Park has now been a racetrack for over 160 years.
The course is still owned by the Carrick Park Pacing club and is the first club to race on the same course for over 100 years.
This historic course is among the longest continual operating harness tracks in Australia. Carrick Park boasts the oldest grandstand in Tasmania still standing – built in 1879.
