28 October 2018
Australian MotoGP

Overlooking the great Southern Ocean, Phillip Island is one of the most recognisable MotoGP circuits.

With an ocean backdrop and bird strikes a regular occurrence, the Australian MotoGP 2018 circuit throws up some tight racing. Many corners are very high speed and viewing from around the Phillip Island track is excellent.

The lively cosmopolitan city of Melbourne is the ideal base for the 2018 Australian MotoGP weekend. With a bewildering array of nightlife and restaurants, the city is a gastronomic delight.

Enjoy a cruise along the Yarra River through the heart of the city or see some spectacular 360­ degree views from the Melbourne Observation Deck, hop on and off the free city circle tram or go further afield and visit the goldfields, wineries and the Great Ocean Road.

A shuttle transfer service runs from Melbourne to the Phillip Island track over the Australian MotoGP 2018  race weekend allowing you to enjoy all of the racing while each evening being able to explore this fun city.
