Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was my first time at the drags and I loved it! There is heaps of parking, you can either park for free or pay $10/$5 a car to park inside the fence. Plenty of toilets and food vendors plus you can bring your own drinks and food. Plenty of rides for the kids. Make sure you bring an umbrella not just for the rain,you will need it for the sun aswell.there are grandstands you can sit on or you can bring a blanket and/or chairs to sit on the grass side. It really is a family fun filled day.

We attended Willowbank Drag Racing for the Multi Day WINTERNATIONALS 2019.

This was the Biggest Drag Racing event outside of USA .Very Noisy , Exciting ,

Smokey , Fast Racing ,Top Fuel Dragsters Rock You in Your Seat ..

There were a few crashes and Rollovers ,Luckily Drivers Survived..

It was a little Rainy which restricted Racing ,But they Managed All Events,ok.

Plenty of Parking , need to Walk Distance ,unless very early . Book Online .

Grandstand seating can be Reserved ,But You are seated in Hot Sun .

You can Book Members Seating / meals/drinks at a Price ..

We attended Saturday / Sunday Events . 8am / 8pm.

Long walk to paddock car parking ,traffic jams on departure .

You can visit Teams / pits / Souveniers /posters / Shirts .

Million$ of Dollar$ in Cars / Transporters / Trailers / Mechanics /Engines /Spares .

Some Spectators attend Thursday to Sunday . There is Lots of Camping , Caravans .

Accomodation at Ipswich and nearby ,caravan park at Willowbank , cabins.

This was Our 4th visit to Willowbank Drag Racing , Expensive ,But Worth it !

Many choices of Food Outlets / Coffee /teas / Drinks .

Toilets become very busy / go early to avoid line ups and minor accidents ..

Have been to this venue a few times now, and always the same issue arises, “when are the venue managers going to organise some shade”.

Hubby and I make the same comment every time we attend something here! We are always in for a good day out and go prepared for whatever the weather throws at us, but it’s that good old Aussie sun that sends us away everytime! It would be so much more comfortable if there were covers over the stands, just can’t understand why the organisers haven’t got this covered! Shame, shame, shame! I’m sure lots more people would attend events here if there was just some decent shade!

My family and friends went into one of their corporate boxes for the New Years Thunder and it was one of the best experiences I have had at the drags in my life. Mum and I got to stand between two Top Fuel cars for the first time and it was mind blowing! 10/10 would do again!
