The National Motor Raciing Museum
Your compulsory pit stop at Bathurst
No visit to Mount Panorama is complete without a stop at the National Motor Racing Museum, right beside the track at Murray’s Corner. Inside you’ll find a constantly-changing array of vehicles that have made their mark on not only Mount Panorama, but Australian motorsport in general. The main hall is packed with not just touring cars, but open-wheelers, motorcycles and all sorts of fascinating memorabilia - trophies, driving suits, leathers, helmets, posters and photographs. Take a break in the 40-seat theatrette and watch the videos covering the glorious history of racing on Mount Panorama since 1938, and the just-released version on the history of motorcycle racing at the track. Enjoy a coffee and check out the museum shop. It’s packed with official team merchandise, books, video and collectables. Naturally, any visit to Mount Panorama is not complete without a spin around the famous circuit itself - just remember to obey the 60 km/h speed limit! Bathurst is just two and a half hour’s drive from Sydney, so there’s no need to wait until the next race meeting - make it a memorable day trip any time. The whole family will love the experience.
