Great modern Go Karts, awesome circuit BUT ... Registration can take at least 30mins and if you want multiple 10min sessions they will most likely split them all up! Therefore our expected 45-60min visit ended up taking a minimum 3hrs. Staff are not really as helpful as they could or should be.

The Go Karts were modern, clean, and felt very safe. Professional staff show a safety video and explain everything. The track is wide and easy to overtake slower karts. Staff are on hand at all times to manage safety. $35.00 for a 10 min session may seem expensive but very worth it. There is also a cafe, slot cars, go... More

The staff were very helpful and fun and there is chances for some good pose photos on the winning rostrum display. Just... More

Visited for a short time. It was great watching the children in their go karts racing around the special track set up for them. If they were too young, there were cars which would hold an adult and they young child. The views over the water were super as the sun was shining on the water. Also, if there had... More

The go karts are great fun! Go try it! I have no driving licence, and no experience whatsoever, but managed to complete 3 laps in 10 min (average is 7-8 laps). Kudos to the staff who were extremely patient and "rescued" me whenever I crash into the tires. My 6 year old son was in the tandem cart with me... More

Even when there isn't any racing going on you can still visit the Visitors Centre. With a small charge you can go through the the history of the track but also gain access to view over the track. The history section was not as interesting as I expected with the cars and bikes on display not having a lot of... More

Visited the race track and got a tour of race command. Not many people, including me, understand the level of technical detail and requirements behind being able to hold race meetings. It was truly awe inspiring. I also didn't know that the circuit makes most of its revenue by people hiring the circuit - not GPs. The race actually makes... More

Phillip Island has a long association with motor sports. The Grand Prix track hosts a number of events, the best known being the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix. The Grand Prix seems to get good reviews. If you wish to attend, please make your arrangements well in advance, as bookings are tight..

We toured the history museum and the race track. Due to rain at times we didn't try the go karts but many groups were escorted out and their results entered on Facebook. Lunch was delicious, filling and good value. The tour started poorly with staff leaving a group behind, a solution was found but I feared our time would be... More
