A visit to Phillip Island would not be complete if you’re a motor sport enthusiast. Immediately when you walk into the centre your eyes will open up when you see cars and bikes on display. Bright red Austin 7 taking you back in time. What an amazing car this would’ve been to drive. If only…
Read up on the history of cars and bikes as you stroll around the centre.
Things to do
If the Motorcycle Grand Prix is not on there are a number of things to do. Slot cars, Hot laps,
Go Karts and simulators on offer or perhaps you’re more interested in the history of motorsports. If this sounds like you then a guided circuit walking tour or circuit viewing and history may be your thing. There is something for all motorsport enthusiasts to enjoy.
Phillip Island Go Karts
If you’re going to give Go Karts a go, what a great place to endure the excitement and get your heart racing as you speed around the 750m Go Kart Track. The race track is a replica of the approximately 4.5km famous Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. Sessions are in 10 min blocks.
Whilst we didn’t have a go on the Go Karts it was mighty tempting. With the day rapidly disappearing time was not on our side this visit. Another great excuse to return to this breathtaking island.
How much does it cost?
A visit to the centre is free, however other activities fees apply. Ensure you check the official website for updating pricing and whats available on your visit. Don’t forget to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit Gift Shop
With a gift shop to entice you to spoil yourself or perhaps buy a gift for a family or friend of all ages.
Our visit was during the covid-19 restrictions and the cafeteria was closed. We did however see this beautiful peacock sheltering from the windy conditions in the outdoor dining area.
