The best fun
Jul. 2021
My son and husband did 5 sessions at the go-kart track. They both loved it. My 13 yr old son studied the track while we drove to Phillip Island. All the staff were pleasant. There is nothing negative about the go-kart track or the staff.

Fun for the family

Although the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit go-karts were not a cheap experience, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, especially in terms of informing us of safety precautions. It had spectacularly efficient scheduling - when we were given the safety briefing, the group before us were just starting for a 10-minute session while we watched the video, got our helmets fitted and were given safety tips and information. It was a reasonably wet day and the tracks were slippery with spin-outs common, although the staff were sensational in advising the drivers of safety measures. If you have kids, take the outside door to the viewing area and along the path you may find a friendly, talking cockatoo named Robbo.

Great experience
Jan. 2021 • Family
Booked in for 6 people, child 5 years, 3 teenagers and 2 parents. It’s not the cheapest thing to do but boy it was so much fun. Superbly organised, focus on safety, helpful and friendly staff added to this wonderful family experience. Try to go on a dry day, it was drizzling when we attended so we really couldn’t go so fast as we would spin out on the wet track. It would been nice if the ticket price included the museum as i think we would have loved to see some of the memorabilia after the go karting. We will definitely be back.

Very informative
Dec. 2020 • Solo
This is a great place to learn about the history of motorsport in Australia and the history of the grand Prix track - from a sheep farm to world class international racing venue. Museum aptly named 'history of motorsport'. Loads of information to digest in the museum. The timeline was excellent, but getting a bit old finishing in 2017. There is excellent merchandise available too - everything from shirts to bottle openers to stickers. Cafe is easily accessible. Go karts look like great fun, but must book. Definitely recommend visiting here. A few old cars on display, lots of motorcycles on display.

Track day and hire bike
Dec. 2020 • Family
I had the very best experience at Phillip Island ride days including hiring one of their brand new BMW S1000rr. The facility, organisation, customer care and equipment was world class. I had an accident and low sided one of their beautiful machines in turn 4. They quickly made it possible for me to get out on an other bike and were extremely fair when it came to rectifying the damage I did to their bike.

They are offering us the opportunity to ride one of the best bikes on one of the best tracks with no hassle or fuss.

I highly recommend PI ride days.

Beaten by my youngest!
Dec. 2020 • Family
Came here again as my boys were keen to beat mum on the go karts. Only one managed. Well organised with all the Covid stuff. You need to book in, so plan ahead. Staff are helpful and friendly. It cost $105 for 10 minutes for the 3 of us, so not cheap. I’d advise to call up before you go, so you can plan to do and see all you want to here

Don’t miss the Go Karts in Phillip Island!
Dec. 2020 • Family
What an amazing experience. We had the whole family and friends share this with us and if there is a better activity we do this week, I’ll write a review for that too - don’t hold your breath.

The whole operation was so slick - friendly and accommodating staff, really good procedures and super-efficient scheduling, great karts and the track... WOW!

We had a tiny bit of rain and a track that changed so much when it was damp - made it even more fun. I think everyone we went with now knows why I spend hours most weekends watching cars on TV.

One last comment - go George Russell in the Mercedes at Sakhir tonight!
