This is one of the best part of Phillip island. Watching car race against backdrop of ocean is amazing experience. It's worth the visit

Only did the go karting. It is on a scale replica of the actual GP race circuit. 10 min per round was more than enough to get the blood pumping. Even though there were some professional teenage racers the overall experiences was pretty good.
