  • Great spot for motor racing fans. Not much else on offer. Lover it. Vroom vroom.
  • Great spot to visit to learn about Australian motor racing history. Plenty of fabulous race cars and motorbikes to check out. There's also a half hour video you can watch as part of your entry fee, but we skipped that.
  • Great display of historic racing cars and motorbikes, great location for tourist and locals to visit. Perfect place to take a car man on fathers day with the range of merchandise for ford/holden and some great Australian icons.
  • Great experience. Lot of cars, old and new. And drove on the circuit, wahou!
  • Well worth the visit if you have any interest in Aussie motor racing
