Iconic Mount Panorama Racecourse

The Bathurst 1000 is by far one of the most iconic sporting events on Australian soil. The Great Race has been going for 55+ years for goodness sake. Newsflash – if you’ve never attended it live in person then you’re absolutely missing out. It’s a wild weekend of V8 supercar action, scented with burning rubber and the approaching Aussie Summer. The off-track entertainment is a major highlight to experience live too.

4. Pre-Selected Bathurst Accomodation

Sportsnet Holidays have pre-selected Bathurst accommodation options in the Bathurst township for you to choose from. Streamlining your sleep and stay requirements with your attendance at the Bathurst 1000. All you have to do is set an alarm and be ready on time from your hotel when we collect you to go trackside.

5. Glamping (Fancy Camping)

Fancy glamping it up in Tent City? Well, base yourself right amongst all the Bathurst 1000 action and mingle with likeminded die hard V8 fans. Sportsnet Holidays will provide you with a pre-set-up steel framed carpeted tent with quality mattresses and a 12-volt light. Hot and cold breakfast is available here. NB: it’s best to fuel up and giddy up quick, even though frequent coach transfers go direct to Mount Panorama you’ll want to get to the track early, so you don’t miss a thing.
