“THE must-see in Bathurst”

Mount Panorama Motor Racing Circuit
Ranked #2 of 38 things to do in Bathurst
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 May 2011

Mount Panorama is a must see for people visiting Bathurst - especially motor racing fans. When there's no racing on at the track, the circuit is open to the public so you can drive around it. Great to experience a drive around THE track of Australia, even if it is in your own car.
Come October every year though, and the Mountain comes alive! Hoardes or V8 Supercar fans travel from all around to see their fave teams and drivers tackle the Mountain. You'll have to get up early if you're planning on doing this though - the race is so popular that people get in to get their seats at 4am on race day.
Get to the top of the Mountain and you'll see a variety of campsites - people battling it out for the best XXXX Gold camp. (including pool tables and spa's - they go all out).
I recommend this for motor racing fans - at least once in your lifetime.

Mount Panorama is Australia's premier motor racing attraction, as well as a superb scenic drive.

Ordinarily, the site of the circuit is a public road, which takes you to the top of Mount Panorama, from where you can see panoramic views of the Bathurst area.

Once a year, it's the site of Australia's premier auto race- the Bathurst 1000 classic.

They close the scenic road to public traffic, and it becomes the race track.

This is one of the world's classic motor races- an endurance race which tests the skills and endurance of the drivers, their cars and their support crews.

Also, thousands of auto racing fans generate a fantastic atmosphere, which is unequalled anywhere.

For anyone seriously interested in auto racing, seeing the Bathurst 1000 is one for the "bucket list".

The best place to stay is the track hotel- all the rooms overlook Conrod Straight, offering a great view of the race.
