The initial 730 metre race circuit was constructed in 1968 and the first race meeting was staged in March of the following year. The circuit was bitumen sealed in 1997 and an extension to 1.2 kilometres (0.75 mi) was subsequently undertaken. A further extension to 2.1 kilometres (1.3 mi) was completed in 2002 and the venue hosted its first Queensland Motor Racing Championships round the same year. In 2007 it hosted its first national championship races, the Formula Vee Nationals and the Australian Improved Production Nationals.

The new 3.0-kilometre layout was first used on the weekend of 14/15 August 2010 for a round of the Shannons Nationals Motor Racing Championships. This meeting featured a round of Australia's oldest motor racing championship, the Australian Drivers' Championship, which was visiting Morgan Park for the first time.
