My teenage kids and I loved the Go karts. Great speeds, good track, safe and well managed. Only downside is that we all realise we are no Mark Webber!!

Dear Guest

Thank you for your 5 star review of Go Karts.The track is suitable for all ages and level of skill due to our remote control engine management system which can slow karts down and even stop them mid track if required. Next time you visit we hope you are able to challenge our celebrity driver lap board, which include times set by Craig Lowndes, Greg Murphy, Jamie Whincup to name just a few. Some bragging rights to be had here!

Thank you for choosing Hamilton Island and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Whitsundays again soon.

Warm Whtsunday Regards

“great fun and worth the trip”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Like everything, its no cheap but well run and good fun. You need closed shoes so wear them or be prepared to be given some pop socks and shoes. Really good track and the staff helpful. Cars a bit heavy on the hands but, generally good fun and worth the time there

“Great fun for kids”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

My children had a ball zooming around on the mini quad bikes. Lots of fun, though be sure to wear sunscreen and a hat as there is no shade whilst supervising children.

“great fun and great for all the family.”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Yesterday after a couple of wet and windy days, we ventured to Palm valley on Hamilton island to see what was up. After being told we had to book quad bikes all the way back at resort, we wondered to the kart track to find them just opening the doors. After a small wait while the track dried we chatted with two friendly staff, and Signed up. After 5 years racing at state level I didn't hold much hope of an adrenaline rush, but with 8 year old in the back seat of the two seater and the 11 yo out front 1up, we were off well we had blast, I could have worked on the set up, but Fernando and Sebastian weren't there, so all is good. Thanks guys, and as a local visiting one of our 74 islands, it is worth the trip for local or tourist. Was on eBay looking at karts by this morning.
